Mack: “If Mitt Romney wins, I win”

by John Kennedy | August 30th, 2012

Republican U.S. Senate nominee Connie Mack IV brought his message Thursday to the Florida delegation to the GOP National Convention and acknowledged that his success is directly linked to the fate of presidential contender Mitt Romney in Florida.

“I think I can win, but there’s a lot of possibilities out there,” Mack told reporters. “If Mitt Romney wins, I win. If I win, Mitt Romney wins. So we are certainly going to be tied together. But see this is something I’m proud of.  I’m proud to stand next to Mitt Romney.”

Mack, who is scheduled to speak to the convention tonight — part of a lineup of Floridians which includes former Gov. Jeb Bush and U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio — told the delegation that the contrasts in the campaign is clear.  President Obama and two-term Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson are also paired, he said.  “Lockstep liberals” is what Mack has called them in TV ads, certain to fill Florida airwaves through Nov. 6.

“If I win and beat Sen. Nelson, I’ll tell you why this is important,” Mack told the Florida crowd over breakfast at the Inverness Golf Resort in Palm Harbor. “Harry Reid will no longer control the agenda in the United States Senate.”
