It’s now official, Congressman Connie Mack is running for the U.S. Senate in Florida. Mack made his formal announcement this evening on Fox News’ Hannity show. It was fitting that Mack did the deed on Hannity’s show, as Sean had already endorsed Mack’s candidacy a couple of weeks back during a trip to Florida. When Mack signaled his forthcoming bid, former Senator George LeMieux, who is also running for the Senate seat, launched a preemptive attack against Mack. Mack’s entrance into the race will further split the Republican vote and make it increasingly difficult for any of the other candidates to establish a firm base of support needed to prevail in the Republican primary.
This race is likely to become a brawl in short order, so stay tuned to the Shark Tank for all of the political chum that is destined to be churned out over the next nine months.
