Weldon gets Citizens United backing



Citizens United Political Victory Fund today endorsed Dave Weldon in Florida's GOP Senate primary, and said it would give his campaign $5,000 for each the primary and general.

“Dr. Dave Weldon is a Christian conservative who has been a champion of the conservative movement for decades,” David N. Bossie, president of Citizens United, said in a statement. “Conservatives in Florida deserve a candidate who can go toe to toe with Bill Nelson and defeat him in November - now they finally have one in Dr. Dave Weldon. Connie Mack is a puppet of the establishment who does not have the high moral caliber that Dr. Weldon displays every day. I urge all conservative Republicans in Florida to support Dr. Dave Weldon in the upcoming primary because he will be a U.S. Senator they can be proud of who will never let them down.”
