Nelson goes 22-0

Sen. Bill Nelson's re-election bid has picked up 22 of 22 daily newspaper endorsements.

The last two came Sunday with backing from the Florida Times-Union in Jacksonville and the Orlando Sentinel, which called Nelson a "practitioner of civility and bipartisanship when both are sorely lacking in Washington."

His Republican opponent, Rep. Katherine Harris, did pick up one endorsement: that of the Polk County Democrat, a twice weekly, that noted in the endorsement it was a "voice in the editorial wildnerness." Harris, born in Key West, grew up in Bartow, and the newspaper noted it has "watched with pride as she worked her way up the political system."

Nelson and Harris will hold their second and final debate at 7 p.m. Wednesday.
