Mack uses web ad to respond to Nelson's TV ad: 'Who cares?'



Connie Mack put together a video response to Sen. Bill Nelson's recent attack ad. “Even if it were all true, and it's not, who cares?" Mack says. “After all, Bill Nelson and I are candidates for the United States Senate and their are real differences between us."

By going with a web video, however, Mack will not reach nearly the same audience as Nelson will with his ad, which highlights Mack's history of brawls, financial trouble and work at Hooters. Mack's decided to confront it by saying those are remnants of youth and he wants to focus on issues, such as Nelson's support for Obamacare.
