Connie Mack campaign really dislikes Adam Smith



The Connie Mack IV campaign for U.S. Senate sent this press release today:

Letter To Adam Smith - Tampa Times

July 24, 2012

Adam Smith

The Tampa Bay Times

490 First Avenue South

St. Petersburg, FL 33701


Dear Adam,  

Since we recently (and appropriately) criticized you for unfairly attacking Connie while doing everything you can to protect Bill Nelson, your latest attack comes as no surprise.  

I guess you just can’t help yourself.  

You tweeted and reported that Connie missed votes this year.  What you didn’t mention is that when Bill Nelson was in Congress and running statewide for Governor in 1990, he had the absolute worst voting record of anyone in Congress. He missed a whopping 56% of his votes. Surely you must know that.

Once again you are acting like Bill Nelson’s Communications Director doing opposition research on your opponent while ignoring the record of your own candidate. The only thing that surprises me, Adam, is that you would do this so soon after being exposed.  

I’m sure Bill Nelson appreciates all your doing for him. But Adam, there’s still time for your redemption, and the people would appreciate that so much more.

Your friend,

Jeff Cohen
