Congressman Connie Mack issued the following statement regarding George LeMieux's withdrawal from the race for U.S. Senate:
"We welcome the latest statement from George LeMieux and agree that the internal fight among Republicans would not have been helpful in our shared commitment to defeat Bill Nelson. I welcome and thank George for his decision to support my campaign.
"I urge all the citizens of Florida who want less government, less taxing, less spending and more freedom to now join with us in our campaign to defeat Bill Nelson and to help Mitt Romney defeat Barack Obama.
"This election is the most important in our life time. Our very freedom, security and prosperity hang in the balance. Bill Nelson and Barack Obama have put our country on the road to Greece. Make no mistake, the people of Florida have had more than enough of these failed Lockstep Liberals.
"Together we will win in November and restore America's promise and purpose."
