    I am represented by him….called his offices and asked for a response back… gave my name, email, and telephone number….its been anout a month…..if only i had the ability to put him in orbit and cross an item bucket list he would maybe have called me back….ohhh well ill be seeing him at every townhall in northeast florida during this years campaign. Ive a job where ive got nothing but time on my hands… it your impression he pulled rubio over to his side. Rubio talks a good game about space as any florida should….but it never really seemed like he cared from his days representing south florida in the legislature.

    Thats no mark on him. I realize legislators have different priorities but do you think he is following nelsons lead here

    I don’t begrudge Nelson his ride, Jake Garn also took a flight, and NASA has to maintain political support. But at this point I am not sure what Nelson is trying to achieve. Congress has more control over NASA policy nowadays than the Administrator.
