Bill Nelson throws kitchen sink at Connie Mack in new ad



Bill Nelson's not playing nice anymore. This new ad ad rips Connie Mack from everything from his work at Hooters (the Buzz recently got one of his old business cards) to bar fights to missed votes. Nelson, who has been pummeled by negative ads from outside groups and super PACs, wants to define Mack negatively before Mack has a chance to define himself. And from his point of view, it's an ugly picture.

Mack spokesman David James: "Bill Nelson is doing what every desperate losing candidate does – smears his opponent as hard as he can. After 40 years of being part of the problem, it’s pathetic."
