Rubio and Nelson also visited citrus growers in Lake Wales and Ave Maria University students in Immokalee on Wednesday.
The pair flew together on a Coast Guard plane on Monday to survey damage in the Keys. They planned to meet at an emergency operations center in Jacksonville on Tuesday, but missed each other by about 30 minutes.
The working relationship between Rubio and Nelson could take some of the partisan edge off next year’s expected challenge to Nelson by Republican Gov. Rick Scott.
Last year, when Democratic Rep. Patrick Murphy challenged Rubio for re-election, Nelson came to Rubio’s defense after Murphy accused him of failing to deliver on federal money to fight the Zika virus.
