Reps. Connie Mack, R-Fla., left, and Mary Bono, R-Calif., were married Saturday in Asheville, N.C.

Mary Bono, who was married to late singer-turned-politician Sonny Bono and replaced him in Congress after his death, has married U.S. Rep. Connie Mack in Asheville, N.C.

Bono's sister, Katherine Whitaker, told The Associated Press the couple were married Saturday in a private ceremony attended by 35 family members.

"It was fantastic," Whitaker said. "It was a very quiet ceremony." A spokeswoman for Mack had said in November that Asheville was selected because it is Whitaker's home.

Mack, a Republican representative from Florida, and Bono, R-Calif., had been dating for two years.
