Connie Mack IV on Principles & Values

Senate challenger; Republican Representative (FL-14)

Son of Senator; husband of Congresswoman

[Long ago], a charismatic young man by the name of Connie Mack became a member of Congress and a U.S. senator, not just because his grandfather was a famed baseball player and manager for whom a youth baseball league was named.

Now many years later, his son serves in Congress and seeks the opportunity to take on incumbent Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson in November. Rep. Connie Mack IV has been endorsed by the head of the official third party organization, branded the "Tea Party." His wife is a fellow member of Congress, Mary Bono Mack, who came to Congress after the untimely death of her late husband, Sonny Bono. Sonny was a very kind and gentle person. It looks like this race in Florida, unless something fires it up, might be as mellow as was Sonny.

For the Pledge of Allegiance to be recited every day

Connie will make sure our education dollars are spent where they belong - on our children. Thatís why Connie believes in merit pay for teachers, and world-class technology and discipline in every classroom. And itís why he fought in the Legislature for character education classes in all public schools and for the Pledge of Allegiance to be recited every day.
