Jimmy Buffett to serenade Nelson's statewide tour

Island troubadour Jimmy Buffett will headline an event for Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson in Orlando Friday as the candidate launches what his re-election campaign is describing as a "Florida First" tour.

Buffett will perform in Orlando in "a brief solo acoustic performance" in between concerts in San Francisco and Las Vegas.

The event is the first of Nelson's "19 planned stops across the Sunshine State leading up to Election Day,'' the campaign said in its statement.

Nelson challenger Connie Mack IV has announced a similar statewide bus tour beginning Oct. 18, the day after the two face off in their one and only debate in Fort Lauderdale.
