Wedding bells for Mack & Bono

September 8, 2007

Wedding bells will be ringing for Reps. Connie Mack and Mary Bono, Mack’s office confirmed.

Mack, 40, popped the question recently to make their coupledom official, according to staffers in his office.

Mack, R-Fla., and Bono, R-Calif., began their in-house romance in 2005, shortly after both announced their marriages were ending.

Bono, 45, is the widow of former Rep. Sonny Bono, R-Calif., who entered Congress after a well-known entertainment career as part of the Sonny and Cher duo. Mack is the son of former Sen. Connie Mack, R-Fla., and the great-grandson of baseball Hall of Famer Connie Mack, the longtime owner/manager of the Philadelphia Athletics.

Both lawmakers are popular Capitol Hill fixtures. Mack was recently named the fifth most beautiful person on Capitol Hill by a Washington newspaper while Bono’s office was voted the most beautiful staff.
