Mack backs Grant over Detert



U.S. Rep. Connie Mack is endorsing state Rep. Michael Grant of Port Charlotte over former state Rep. Nancy Detert of Venice in the Republican primary for state Senate District 23, and Gov. Charlie Crist is doing the same.

“Time and again, Mike has demonstrated why he is a respected leader the Florida Legislature, and that he is committed to keeping spending in-check, reducing taxes, growing our economy and ensuring Southwest Florida remains a great place to live, work and visit," Mack said in a statement. “Michael Grant has proven that he’s committed to promoting and defending Southwest Florida ’s shared mainstream conservative principles, and that’s why I am proud to endorse him in his campaign for the District 23 Florida Senate seat."
