Memo to Connie Mack: It's A-R-R-I-Z-U-R-I-E-T-A

One reason campaigns spend so much time sending out press release about steering committees and endorsements is that their supporters like seeing their names.

Presumably, they want their names spelled correctly as well. 

But in all fairness to the Connie Mack for Senate campaign, the name of longtime Republican fundraiser "Jorge Arrizurieta" of Miami is a tough name to get right. 

Here's the press release:

FT. MYERS – Congressman Connie Mack (R-FL) announced the initial names of his statewide Finance Steering Committee for his campaign for the United States Senate.  These key initial supporters will help establish a strong and deeply committed network around the state of Florida to help raise money for Mack’s campaign.

Mack said:

“The outpouring of support this early in my campaign has been exciting and humbling.  Having the support of these respected individuals from across the state get us one step closer to defeating Bill Nelson and the Lockstep Liberals in Washington. Their help, support and guidance will be an important part of our successful campaign.”
