Galvano: I'm considering running for AG

State Rep. Bill Galvano, R-Bradenton, tells the Miami Herald/St. Petersburg Times bureau in Tallahassee that he is considering a run for Florida attorney general, now that incumbent Bill McCollum is running for governor.

The Naked Politics blog reports:
Galvano's name now gets added to the list of other potential candidates: Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp and former chief of staff to Gov. Charlie Crist, George LeMieux.

"It is something that I'm taking a look at," Galvano said. He noted that while Republican Party chairman Jim Greer continues to discourage primary battles, Galvano believes "the rank and file really do want to have some options. These are very challenging times and that also equates to challenges in statewide elections so there are people who are interested in making sure decisions are not made too quickly and that there are options to evaluate."
Term limits mean Galvano, chairman of the House Rules committee, cannot run for re-election to the Florida House next year.
