Mack gets another PAC in his cornerby John Kennedy | October 9th, 2012
Republican U.S. Senate contender Connie Mack, already the beneficiary of heavy third-party spending in his bid to unseat Democrat Bill Nelson, got another organization in his corner Tuesday.
RAND PAC, a leadership fund run by Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul, is airing a TV spot attacking Nelson for his support of sending foreign aid to Libya, Egypt and Pakistan. Paul said he is siding with Mack for his refusal to support anti-American regimes.
“Our country is $16 trillion in debt and faces yet another trillion dollar deficit,” Paul said. “It makes no sense to send our hared-earned taxpayer dollars overseas, especially to countries with hostile governments that hate us.
Mack also was endorsed Tuesday by the Florida Medical Association, an opponent of the federal health care overhaul which singled out Nelson for his support of the measure.
