U.S. Rep. Connie Mack

U.S. Rep. Connie Mack (R), who is challenging incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson (D), stops to speak with reporters. Mack told Florida delegates that President Obama and Nelson believe in a "central planning idea that government is the answer to all of our problems... Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan and myself, we believe in you. We believe in the individual." Mack went on to say that he's been hearing from small business owners around the state who were upset by President Obama's "you didn't build that" comment and "fed up that they don't have a president who believes in them."
