Sen. Rand Paul endorses Connie Mack in Senate race

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, son of Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul, is endorsing Connie Mack for U.S. Senate in the Republican race. The press release:

MIAMI – Congressman Connie Mack today received another key conservative endorsement in his race for the United States Senate, this time from conservative Senate stalwart Rand Paul (R-KY).
Paul, one of the nation’s leading TEA Party leaders and champion of freedom from government stated:
“I’ve had the opportunity to work first-hand with Connie Mack. He is a passionate defender and a tireless advocate for the ideals of less taxing, less spending, less government and more freedom.
“From standing against the Bush Administration on TARP and fighting against President Obama’s failed stimulus, to his introduction of the Penny Plan, which I strongly support, Connie Mack has proven time and again that he is a staunch conservative and the very type of principled leader that we need in the United States Senate.
"Winning the Florida Senate seat for conservatives means the defeat of Harry Reid and all of us need to rally around Connie for the sake of our country.  We need Connie Mack in the U.S. Senate."
Mack said:
“Senator Rand Paul was one of the earliest supporters of the Mack Penny Pan to balance the budget in five years and I’m honored to have earned his support in our fight for freedom against Bill Nelson.  His fight for our shared goal of less government and more freedom in the U.S Senate has made him one of our nation’s most important conservative leaders.
“I look forward to working closely with Senator Paul in the United States to bring this country back to its founding principles, back to what makes America great and back to the road to prosperity.”
