American Conservative Union endorses Mack in Senate race

Mack

As Florida Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater mulls a late entry into the GOP Senate primary, the influential American Conservative Union has weighed in for U.S. Rep. Connie Mack, R-Cape Coral.

ACU puts on the annual CPAC conferences and issues yearly ratings of congressional conservatism (Mack got a 92 percent ACU score last year, compared to 100 percent for Sen. Marco Rubio and 88 percent for Reps. Allen West and Tom Rooney).

Mack is running against former appointed Sen. George LeMieux and businessman Mike McCalister for the Republican nomination to challenge Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson.

Here’s the endorsement statement from ACU Chairman Al Cardenas, a former Republican Party of Florida chairman: “From his proven leadership on pro-growth economic policies and energy independence solutions to his courageous efforts to bring attention to dangerous and tyrannical regimes across the world, it is clear Connie Mack is the innovative, conservative leader ready to take on Bill Nelson this fall. Liberals in the Senate have rubber-stamped President Obama’s agenda, and now it is time for voters to hold them accountable. Congressman Mack is one of many great conservatives running for Senate across the country, and the American Conservative Union PAC is proud to endorse him. The ACU PAC urges all Florida conservatives to support Connie Mack for U.S. Senate, and we look forward to aiding his victory in both the primary and general elections.”

    How many points did they give Mack for having numerous adulterous affairs in DC, divorcing his wife and leaving her & his 2 kids to live in poverty while he spent all his off time going to California to hang with his girlfriend, Sonny Bono’s ex? This after sending out flyers with a photo of him with his wife & 2 kids to voters touting his “family values.”
    How is it “conservative” to be the PR man for Hooters?
    Mack is a fraud and unfit for any public office.
