Rep. Connie Mack (R) today received two major boosts in his race against Florida Sen. Bill Nelson (D) for the U.S. Senate seat.
One came from FreedomWorks, which announced its intentions in an email to 102,000 Florida members of the PAC.
From the Tampa Bay Times:
In addition to signaling its preference, FreedomWorks provides candidates with yard signs, door hangers and other get out the vote materials. Candidates also get put into its national phone banking system. People from Ohio, for example, could be making calls on Mack’s behalf.
The other push came from Sheldon Adelson, a Las Vegas casino tycoon, who will provide $1 million to Mack — possibly as a pledge to Freedom PAC, a PAC backing Mack.
[Adelson] plans to spend around $100 million this [election] cycle.
Adelson’s backing follows his $10 million donation to Restore Our Future, a PAC supporting Mitt Romney, June 13.
