Miami's GOP congressional leaders to officially endorse Connie Mack on Monday

Looks like all three siting Miami Republican representatives --Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Mario Diaz-Balart and David Rivera-- are endorsing U.S. Sen candidate Connie Mack. Also throwing in his support: Diaz-Balart's brother, former Congressman Lincoln Diaz-Balart.

From a press release:

Miami – Along with candidate for U.S. Senate, Congressman Connie Mack, U.S. Representatives Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Mario Diaz-Balart, David Rivera and Lincoln Diaz-Balart will hold a press conference in Hialeah on Monday, February 13, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. EST. The following event is open to the press:

The news comes following Mack’s statewide campaign launch tour last week, with stops in Tampa, Tallahassee, Jacksonville, Boca Raton, Miami and Ft. Myers and an eight-day statewide tour  campaigning with Florida Presidential Primary winner, Governor Mitt Romney.
This weekend, Mack will take an active role at the CPAC conference in Washington D.C., starting with co-hosting CNN's morning coverage of the event from 7:00 to 9:00 a.m. Friday and leading a panel discussion on balancing the federal budget later in the day.
