NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Republican U.S. Senate candidate Connie Mack IV stressed the need to help small businesses during a campaign appearance as he fights Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson for votes in the final days before the election.
Nelson, meanwhile, had only one scheduled public event Sunday in which he was supposed to appear with President Barack Obama in Hollywood, but ended up not making it to the event.
Mack spoke to about 60 people in New Smyrna Beach at an event he held with the National Federation of Independent Businesses. In a short speech, Mack said the election is all about small businesses.
He later spoke to supporters in Lakeland and planned a television news interview.
