Terrible night for Connie Mack -- and his wife, Mary Bono Mack



marybono2012palmspringsinternationalkobroja0bmzl.jpgConnie Mack, who was easily dispatched last night by Sen. Bill Nelson, has another kick in the pants this morning. It appears his wife, California Rep. Mary Bono Mack, lost her re-election battle.

"One of the most contentious elections the desert has ever witnessed saw (Raul) Ruiz take a less than one percentage point lead over incumbent Rep. Mary Bono Mack in the 36th Congressional District with nearly 40 percent of the unofficial results counted," writes the local paper.

"But Bono Mack early this morning said based on historic voting trends, she expected Ruiz to prevail."
