Connie Mack's cash haul: $1 million


Congressman Connie Mack will report he raised more than $1 million in his first full quarter since entering the Senate race.

His campaign announced the figure Wednesday. Mack entered the race in late November and reported after the end of the year he started the race with about $750,000 raised, including about $300,000 transferred from a House account.

Republican George LeMieux will report a lesser amount next week. Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson has not yet reported.

    Mack spokesman David James said 80 percent of Mack's total for the quarter came after LeMieux began negative attacks on the congressman.
