By Javier ManjarresSenator Rand Paul (R-KY) has endorsed Congressman Connie Mack for U.S. Senate, giving him the nod over former U.S. Senator George LeMieux in Florida’s Republican senatorial primary race.
Paul’s endorsement of Mack adds to his growing list of notable conservative endorsements including Congresswoman Michele Bachmann and former Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum.
Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has already thrown his two cents into the Senate primary when he referred Mack as “the next Senator from Florida” during his last campaign trip to Florida.
“I’ve had the opportunity to work first-hand with Connie Mack. He is a passionate defender and a tireless advocate for the ideals of less taxing, less spending, less government and more freedom.“From standing against the Bush Administration on TARP and fighting against President Obama’s failed stimulus, to his introduction of the Penny Plan, which I strongly support, Connie Mack has proven time and again that he is a staunch conservative and the very type of principled leader that we need in the United States Senate.
“I urge the people of Florida and conservatives from across the country to stand together and to stand with me in making certain that Connie Mack has the organization and resources he needs to beat liberal Senator Bill Nelson.” – U.S. Senator Rand Paul
“I’m honored to have earned the support and trust of Senator Rand Paul. His fight for our shared goal of less government and more freedom in the U.S Senate has made him one of our nation’s most important conservative leaders. His time in the Senate should serve as a model to all elected officials that government should rely on the individual, rather than the individual relying on an ever-growing government.
“I look forward to working closely with Senator Paul in the United States to bring this country back to its founding principles, back to what makes America great and back to the road to prosperity.” – Congressman Connie Mack
