Republican U.S. Senate candidate Connie Mack is expected to hit 10 locations during a three-day swing through the state this weekend.

The Fort Myers congressman began the second leg on his statewide Freedom Tour on Wednesday night following the debate with Democratic incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson. The tour is expected to hit 17 communities across the state in six days.

Mack is scheduled to attend two events — an aerospace and defense industry roundtable at the Holiday Inn Titusville at the Kennedy Space Center this morning; and a rally at 6 p.m. at Osceola Heritage Park in Kissimmee — before attending the Romney-Ryan Victory Rally at 8:30 p.m. tonight at the Daytona Beach Bandshell in Daytona Beach.

On Saturday, Mack will attend a kickoff for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk at the Space Coast Stadium in Viera, before traveling to the Indian River fairgrounds in Vero Beach for an afternoon rally.

Mack then will spend Sunday at meet-and-greets in Okeechobee, Port St. Lucie and Stuart.
