Bill Nelson on Mubarak's departure: Truly monumental

Bill Nelson, who stepped out ahead of the White House in calling for the Egyptian president to step down, (his office says he was "the first U.S. senator to call for Mubarak's resignation) called today's development "truly monumental.

"President Mubarak rightly honored the Egyptian people’s calls for freedom," Nelson said. "All nations must now support an orderly, peaceful transition to democracy. We hope the first steps of the new government will be to guarantee free and fair elections as soon as possible, while also keeping the peace with all of Egypt’s neighbors including Israel."
