Gator's the state reptile; Bill Nelson's the "state liberal," pro-Connie Mack PAC says in ad welcoming Obama to FL

Freedom PAC welcomes President Obama to Florida today with a light-hearted ad that calls Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson the "state liberal." The PAC, which supports Republican challenger Connie Mack, says the ad is running in select markets, which will could include Jacksonville, West Palm Beach, Fort Myers and Orlando (where Obama is visiting).

The script: "President Obama is taking a break from his liberal agenda to visit Florida... Here's a few things you should know - The state flower is the Orange Blossom. The state reptile is the Alligator. The state tree is the Palm. And the state liberal... is Senator Bill Nelson. Nelson voted for ObamaCare and chose to side with President Obama 98% of the time. Now, you have a choice - support Connie Mack for US Senate."

One little visual error: The ad shows a coconut palm when talking about the state tree. The actual symbol is a the less-iconic-looking sabal palm.

Here's a pic of the sabal palm for all y'all in the upper 48: Picture 7

LOL, Connie Mack IV is the one who needs a refresher on Florida since he spends so little time here in Florida between his home in California and DC.
Plus he ain't that bright.

I love the lockstep BS cause Nelson has disagreed with the President on many occasions when their policy did not benefit Floridian's yet Republican Senator Marco Rubio votes 100% of the time with Conservatives, so in actuality he is the lockstep Senator in Florida. And Nelson has never been liberal despite what Republicans preach about his voting record the last 2 years.

Connie Mack might as well be a cardboard cutout, cause he has little to say and never even votes. Yesterday he missed an important anti Terrorism vote in the House so he could raise money.

If he won't do his job as a Congressman what's to say he will do it as a Senator?


"Plus he ain't that bright." Well then he should be a worthy replacement for Bill Nelson, who is not exactly known for being the brightest bulb in the pack. I look forward to the day Bill can go ahead and enjoy his retirement, although I don't look forward to paying for it.

@Tallaman Connie Mack is rated by a study to have the simplest speech of anyone in Congress...

Facts ARE stubborn things, and the facts show that Bill Nelson is another out-of-touch career politician whose voting record closely parallels those of liberal extremists Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. Don't be fooled by the hype printed by the liberal media - check out Nelson's voting record for yourself at freeridebill.com.
