— One week before Election Day, U.S. Senate hopeful Connie Mack voted Tuesday at a Fort Myers polling location.

Mack, the state's Republican nominee, returned to his home district to vote in the midst of a statewide campaign. He voted at the Lee County Elections Center off U.S 41, near Daniels Parkway.

"We feel good about where we are and where we'll end up on Election Day," Mack said outside the polling location. "We need to get people out to vote."

Mack trails in virtually all polls, but the candidate says his internal polling show a 1.4-percentage point advantage over incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson.

Mack continues his bus tour this afternoon in Lake Wales, located southwest of Orlando. He's scheduled to campaign Wednesday in Tampa, Miami and Jacksonville with Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

A campaign spokesman said Tuesday that Mack will spend Election Night in Estero.
