MIAMI, June 6, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Jeb Bush, Governor of Florida from 1999-2007, today endorsed Congressman Connie Mack's campaign for the United States Senate to take on incumbent liberal Senator Bill Nelson in November.
"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."
Thanking Governor Bush for his endorsement, Mack stated:
"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."
Governor Bush's endorsement follows a series of conservative endorsements for Mack, including Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney, U.S. Senator Rand Paul, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, Governor Luis Fortuno and a growing number of the Florida Congressional delegation.
