Connie Mack hit for hitting the red carpet, in California
That provided ammunition for both Democrats and Republicans in Florida.
"@ConnieMackIV hits the red carpet in CA instead of the campaign trail in FL," tweeted Brannon Jordan, spokeswoman for the Florida Democratic Party.
"He's TOTALLY focused on winning this election for the people of California...I mean...Florida," wrote Rick Wilson, an adviser to Republican candidate Adam Hasner, in an e-mail to reporters. "A lot of people have been asking where Connie's been since his
announcement -- since he sure isn't doing events in Florida -- well...I
guess now we know."
