AP: Connie Mack loses Senate bid

Republican Rep. Connie Mack has lost his bid for the U.S. Senate in Florida, according to the Associated Press.

Mack, the husband of Palm Springs’ Rep. Mary Bono Mack, was hoping to unseat Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson.

Initial results from the Florida Secretary of StateĀ show Mack has 41.5 percent of the vote to Nelson’s 56.03 percent.

Those results include more than 5.2 million votes.

Mack had often campaigned in conjunction with Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.
