Lee, a constitutional lawyer and Tea Party favorite, said:
“Connie Mack’s fight to protect our constitutional freedoms and cut the size and scope of the federal government has been a hallmark of his service to the people of Florida.
“Having Connie’s voice in the U.S. Senate will greatly enhance our ability to not only stop Harry Reid and Bill Nelson’s liberal agenda, but to return our nation to a path of constitutionally limited government, more individual liberty, and greater prosperity.”
Mack thanked Lee for his support, saying:
“There is a growing movement in the U.S. Senate to protect the Constitution and the fiscal integrity of the United States. Senator Lee’s leadership in that fight is one I admire deeply, and I am honored to have his endorsement. I look forward to the opportunity to stand with Senator Lee and other like-minded conservatives in our fight for freedom and prosperity in the United States Senate.”
