Spreading the wealth

After months of incessant fundraising on his own behalf, Sen. Bill Nelson is working for other Democrats on the ticket.

Nelson's campaign today sent out a fundraising e-mail asking for donations to Democrat Christine Jennings who is locked in a competitive race with Republican Vern Buchanan for the seat that Rep. Katherine Harris gave up to challenge Nelson.

Democrats - who hope to take at least three Republican congressional seats in Florida in their quest to take over control of the House - suggest Harris' seat would be particularly satisfying. Several polls have suggested Jennings has more than a 10 point lead over Buchanan, who has self-financed much of his campaign and benefitted last week from a visit by President Bush.

"With one week to go, Christine is on the verge of winning Katherine Harris' House seat and securing a key win for the Democrats,' Nelson said in the e-mail.
