By Javier ManjarresThe Connie Mack for Senate campaign continues its surge and is looking beyond the Republican primary, as it has just received the endorsement from former Florida Governor Jeb Bush. The Bush endorsement is considered to be one of two political heavyweight game-changing nods in Florida, the other being that of Senator Marco Rubio.
With Bush’s endorsement of Mack, will it mean that a Rubio endorsement is not too far behind? After all, Rubio recently stated that Mack’s opponent in the Republican primary race, George LeMieux was “not very helpful” during his 2010 Senatorial campaign.
Here is what former Governor Jeb Bush said:
“Connie Mack is the principled conservative that the people of Florida deserve representing them in the U.S. Senate. Connie has the courage, conservative values, experience and determination to confront the tough issues facing our nation. We must return conservatives to the majority in the U.S. Senate. Connie is the person Floridians need in Washington working with Senator Marco Rubio to reduce our national debt and limit out-of-control spending.”
Congressman Connie Mack responding to the endorsement:
“I am truly humbled to receive the support of Governor Bush, a man whose service and dedication to this state serves as an example to anyone in public service. His tireless efforts on behalf of Florida’s children, particularly in the area of education, are unmatched, and his strong support in communities across Florida is a testament to his leadership ability. It is an honor to call Jeb Bush a friend. I thank him for his support and his leadership, and I look forward to continuing to work closely with him in the months and years ahead.”
