TEA Party of Florida Endorses Connie Mack for U.S. Senate

The TEA Party of Florida endorsed Republican Connie Mack for U.S. Senate on Friday.

The only tea organization registered as a political party in Florida lauded Mack, saying, "Connie was 'TEA Party' before there was a TEA Party."

Party Chairman John Long praised the Naples congressman on several fronts, including "his notable fiscal defections from his own Republican leadership in the Florida and U.S. House, and his Penny Plan, which, more than any other plan, balances the budget faster and restores our economic freedom."

Long said the TEA Party, whose candidates garnered more than 300,000 votes in 2010 races, will endorse major party candidates who share its views. TEA endorsed Rick Scott in the 2010 gubernatorial election.

"We plan to be very active on Connie's behalf throughout the Republican primary all the way through his victory in the November election.

"It's time for a united front against Senator Bill Nelson’s and Barack Obama's failed liberal experiments that threaten the very blanket of liberty that has and must always define America," Long said.

Oh yeah he was Tea Party. Read below his reaction the Arizona law HB1070

"This law of 'frontier justice' – where law enforcement officials are required to stop anyone based on 'reasonable suspicion' that they may be in the country illegally – is reminiscent of a time during World War II when the Gestapo in Germany stopped people on the street and asked for their papers without probable cause," Mack said in a statement.

"This is not the America I grew up in and believe in, and it’s not the America I want my children to grow up in," he added.
