Bonita Springs, Florida -- Senator Bill Nelson is battling it out with Congressman Mack. Most polls have Senator Nelson ahead but that's not stopping the enthusiasm from the Mack camp.
Tuesday afternoon the Connie Mack camp was setting up a banquet room at a hotel in Bonita Springs hoping for a victory party later tonight.
The race between Mack and Nelson has played out over the airwaves with negative campaign ads that have been running for months now.
45-year-old Congressman Mack considers himself a mainstream conservative and his motto of more freedom, less taxes is the same one you'd normally hear from his father Connie Mack III, a former U.S. senator and representative from Fort Myers who spent 18 years as a lawmaker in Washington before he retired.
His son, though, is after Senator Bill Nelson's job and he's criticized Nelson saying Nelson voted for higher taxes 150 times and has to go.
But Nelson says Mack hasn't shown up for his current job as a congressman and hasn't been around to vote either way. Mack says he stands by his record of voting against the President's Affordable Care Act, the Dodd-Frank regulation on the banking industry, and the automatic budget cuts that would especially affect the military.
