Twenty-four hours after releasing its first spot of the campaign, Sen. Bill Nelson’s re-election team on Thursday unveiled a second TV ad–this one hitting likely GOP nominee Connie Mack for having “questionable work habits.”
“Florida, meet Connie Mack the Fourth,” the narrator says in the 30-second spot. “A promoter for Hooters … with a history of bar room brawling, altercations and road rage … a trail of debts, liens and unpaid bills. He has one of the worst attendance records in Congress this year … but voted to end Medicare as we know it.”
The ad closes by citing a Tampa Bay Times editorial from last month that questioned Mack’s qualifications. The ad cites a specific passage from the Times editorial that says Mack may have a famous name but he himself has “questionable work habits, a sense of entitlement and an undistinguished record in Congress.”
The spot, entitled “Meet Connie,” will air on TV stations all across Florida.
