Connie Mack Wins GOP Senate Primary In Florida

From CNN's Ashley Killough and Gregory Wallace:

Florida Rep. Connie Mack won Tuesday's Republican primary in Florida over other Republicans seeking to challenge Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson.

Mack's main opponents–former Rep. Dave Weldon and retired Army Col. Mike McCalister–conceded.

The winner of Tuesday's GOP contest will go on to challenge incumbent Nelson in Florida, a crucial swing state in the presidential election.

The Cook Political Report rates the seat as leaning toward the Democratic Party, while another political handicapper, the Rothenberg Political Report, describes the race as a "toss up/tilting Democrat" contest.
