TALLAHASSEE, Fla. —
Congressman Connie Mack officially announces his candidacy for Bill Nelson's U.S. Senate seat.
"Frankly, I think the people of Florida have had enough," Mack told Sean Hannity on his Fox News TV program in making his announcement.
"They've had enough of every time they turn around, Senator Nelson is supporting and helping Barack Obama with Barack Obama's agenda of more government," Nelson goes on to say.
Mack joins a Republican field that includes former Senator George LeMieux, Former state representative Adam Hasner, retired Army colonel Mike McCalister and former restaurant CEO Craig Miller.
A Rasmussen poll taken Nov. 17 shows that Mack is the only one of the five polling ahead of Nelson in head-to-lead matchups.
It shows Mack with a four-point lead over Nelson.
Mack's father, Connie Mack III, served in the U.S. Senate from 1989-2001.
