Romney endorses Mack in GOP Senate primaryby George Bennett | May 16th, 2012
Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has endorsed Rep. Connie Mack in Florida’s contentious GOP Senate primary.
Mack, who has been facing a barrage of character attacks from GOP primary rival George LeMieux, was a key surrogate for Romney before Florida’s Jan. 31 presidential primary.
At a rally in Dunedin the day before the primary, Romney referred to Mack as the “next U.S. Senator from Florida.”
Romney made it official today, issuing this statement: “Connie Mack is a friend, a strong conservative and the type of principled leader we need in Washington to restore fiscal responsibility. By electing Connie Mack, the people of Florida will be sending a clear message to Senator Nelson and President Obama that their failed policies have not worked to change the borrow and spend ways of Washington.”
