Representative Connie Mack (R-FL) “is expected to announce he’s running for U.S. Senate Friday,” David Catanese reports.
A release is billing the 10 a.m. rollout at the county courthouse in Ft. Myers as a “major announcement regarding the 2012 race . . . against liberal incumbent Bill Nelson.”
Mack will be the third official Republican to enter the campaign, following former Col. Mike McCalister and Senate President Mike Haridopolos.
Update (3/25): Mack “won’t run for U.S. Senate,” the St. Petersburg Times reports.
