Haridopolos endorses Connie Mack



Senate President Mike Haridopolos, R-Merritt Island, a former candidate for U.S. Senate, announced Wednesday that he will endorse Florida Congressman Connie Mack for the post "because he would be a first class senator, he has the experience and most importantly, in these very difficult times he has the consistent conservative record."

Mack, R-Fort Myers, announced last week that he would enter the race, shaking up the field that now includes three other Republican candidates. Haridopolos, who dropped out of the race last summer after nine months, made his announcement at the annual Associated Press pre-session press briefing and said that he and his wife "will do everything we can" to help him and urge his supporters to support Mack.
