CAPE CORAL, Fla. - Connie Mack weighed in Monday morning on the announcement that Congressman Trey Radel is resigning from the seat that Mack once held.

Mack has been rumored as a possible candidate for his old seat.

The following is his response:

"Trey's decision to resign from Congress was undoubtedly very difficult, but it was the right decision. Trey's been a friend for many years, and I just can't imagine how difficult this situation has been for his entire family. All of us wish Trey and Amy nothing but the best moving forward.

"Now it's time for Southwest Florida to elect a new Congressman who will be a tireless champion of our shared mainstream conservative values. We must begin to solve the real long term  challenges facing our country, including restoring fiscal discipline to our politics and our policies. That includes being a staunch advocate for the Mack Penny Plan which would cut spending and balance our budget in a common-sense responsible manner. The people of Southwest Florida and the nation deserve nothing less."
