Marco Rubio to hit the trail with Connie Mack



Connie Mack is about to get some big-name help in his race against U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson. Sen. Marco Rubio will campaign with Mack on Oct. 1 with stops in Miami, Tampa and The Villages.

The Rubio appearances will follow a Mack bus tour across Florida, a campaign official says. Details are coming this week.

Rubio remained neutral in the Republican U.S. Senate primary but said he'll help the nominee. The latest polls show Mack slipping, a trend the campaign hopes a new TV ad, the bus tour and Rubio will help reverse.
