Connie Mack sees George LeMieux's Herman Cain and raises him a Michele Bachmann


Former Presidential candidate Herman Cain endorsed George LeMieux for U.S. Senate last weekend in Hernando County (see above). Cain: “This is the type of person that we need in Washington, DC. People who are not afraid to challenge the establishment; people who are there to represent the people and not represent politics; people who understand that it’s time that we stop shuffling the chairs on the deck of the Titanic and start solving stuff. That’s the kind of Senator that he is, that’s the kind of Senator that he will be, that’s why I support you, sir.”

Not to be outdone, Connie Mack today rolled out an endorsement from Michele Bachmann: "Connie has been a steadfast fighter for freedom, less government and a fiscal hawk together with me in the United States Congress.  For every good proposal passed out of the House, the liberal Senate under Harry Reid and Bill Nelson have stopped it, including Connie's recent proposal to build the Keystone XL Pipeline without Presidential approval.  Senators like Marco Rubio and Rand Paul need other like-minded conservatives in the Senate to stop the liberals from tearing down our nation.  America needs Connie Mack in the U.S. Senate."
