Nelson, a senior member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and former member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said he met with Haspel Tuesday afternoon to discuss her nomination.
During her confirmation hearing last week, Haspel said she wouldn't restart the interrogation program. The committee's eight Republicans were joined by Democrats Mark Warner of Virginia and Joe Manchin of West Virginia.
"Gina Haspel has dedicated her life to serving her country and the courageous men and women who work at the Central Intelligence Agency deserve a career professional, like her, to lead them", Nelson said.
President Donald Trump's pick to be the next director of the Central Intelligence Agency has toughened her public stance against harsh interrogation. Four Democrats and one Independent voted against Haspel, including: Sens.
The vote for Haspel is shaping up to be similar to last month's tally for Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who was confirmed with the backing of six Democrats from states Trump won in 2016, five of whom are up for re-election this year.
She ran a black-site prison in Thailand where a high-level terrorist was detained and tortured in 2002.
"While her career has been impressive, Ms. Haspel's role in programs that conducted torture is very troubling; her refusal to acknowledge the immorality of such conduct even today with the benefit of hindsight is even more so and reflects poorly on our nation's reputation as a moral leader in the world".
Two Republicans, Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky and John McCain of Arizona, are opposed to Haspel's nomination, and McCain isn't expected to be back in Washington for the vote while he battles brain cancer.
The four Democrats supporting Haspel are: Warner, Manchin, Joe Donnelly of IN, and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota.
"Most importantly, I believe she is someone who can and will stand up to the president if ordered to do something illegal or immoral - like a return to torture", Mr. Warner said. Trump has said in the past that "torture works" and that he would consider using it again. Nearly all Senate Republicans are likely to vote for Haspel.
"I do not support use of enhanced interrogation techniques for any objective", Haspel wrote.
A letter from more than 100 former US ambassadors said Haspel's confirmation would undermine diplomatic efforts to discourage torture by tyrants in other countries.
