AG, CFO Close to Senate Decision

January 13th, 2009 by flanews

Floridas Chief Financial Officer and Attorney General are getting closer to making decisions about running for US Senate in 2010.

Tuesday Democratic Congressman Kendrick Meek announced his candidacy for the seat currently held by Republican Mel Martinez. CFO Alex Sink said her announcement will come soon.

I cant stand the tension myself. So yes, Ill be making my decision very soon, said Sink.

Attorney General Bill McCollum, a Republican, said people are encouraging him to run.

“I am taking a very serious look at it. Im talking to people about it who have encouraged me to run and were going to take our time and do it the right way. Not forever, but I cant give you a timetable, said McCollum.

Former Governor Jeb Bush was considered to be the front running for the seat. Bush took his name out of the hat last week.
