McCollum to Seek Re-Election

January 28th, 2009 by Mike Vasilinda

Saying there is still more to do, Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum this afternoon indicated he will seek re-election “unless circumstances change”.

Unanswered is the question of which circumstances could change that would cause him to reconsider. Speculation is that if Charlie Crist were to seek the Senate seat, the Attorney General would likely run for Governor.

Here’s McCollum’s full statement:

Over the past several weeks since the announcement of Senator Mel Martinez that he would not seek re-election, I have given considerable thought to the possibility of running for his United States Senate seat.
The people of Florida have given me the honor of serving them as their Attorney General.Our team has made great strides combating internet child predators, gangs and mortgage and Medicaid fraud, and in providing consumer protection.But there is more to do.
Unless circumstances change it is my intention, at the appropriate time, to announce that I will be seeking re-election as Floridas Attorney General.
