Dan Gelber "Steps Back" From Senate Race
He made the announcement on his blog:
It makes little sense -- when we do face the prospect of real change in Florida -- for me to participate in a potentially divisive primary for U.S. Senate that will only serve to diminish our chances against a very formidable and well-known Republican nominee.
I also believe that we have a historic opportunity here in Florida to reshape the political landscape and more importantly, bring fundamental change to Tallahassee.
Let's read between the lines. 1. He doesn't want to run in a primary where the "winner" will have an uphill battle facing Charlie Crist in the general election. 2. He's got his eyes on Tallahassee now instead of Washington DC.
