Kottkamp Launches AG Campaign

July 20th, 2009 by flanews

Lieutenant Governor Jeff Kottkamp is running for the states top crime fighting position.

Kottkamp wants to replace Bill McCollum as Floridas Attorney General. McCollum is stepping down to run for Governor in 2010. Kottkamp said his campaign wont get in the way of his duty as Lieutenant Governor.

Serving as Attorney General would certainly be a culmination of a lot of the experiences Ive had in my life, something I feel very passionate about, but first and foremost Im going to focus on being Lieutenant Governor, said Kottkamp.

Kottkamp wouldnt answer questions about his decision, telling reporters he would answer questions Wednesday when he makes a formal announcement. Kottkamp faces an ethics complaint for using the state plane for personal travel.
