Mack's First TV Ad Slams Nelson Over Spending

Rep. Connie Mack, R-Fla., is going bananas over Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson's stimulus vote.

Mack released the first TV ad of his Senate campaign Wednesday. The spot, which will air statewide on broadcast and cable, starts with a clip of Nelson touting President Obama's stimulus package. The ad's narrator then highlights one particular aspect of the stimulus that has drawn scorn from Republicans in the past.

"He voted for millions in wasteful spending, including spending our tax dollars to see how monkeys react under the influence of cocaine," the narrator says. "Hey Bill Nelson, stop monkeying around with our tax dollars."

Mack is the first GOP candidate to go up on TV. He faces former Sen. George LeMieux and retired Army Col. Mike McCalister in the primary.
