The Bradenton Herald's Sara Kennedy reports:
Former Republican state Rep. Ron Reagan today said he's thinking of running for Manatee County supervisor of elections, but has not made up his mind definitively.
"I will know next week," said Reagan. a Republican.
He did confirm he was not considering running for any other office.
Reagan served eight years in the Florida House of Representatives. He could not run for re-election in 2010 because of term limits. The seat is now held by Rep. Greg Steube, R-Bradenton.
The post of supervisor of elections is being vacated by Bob Sweat, a long-time incumbent who has announced he would retire later this year. His long-time assistant, Nancy Bignell, has also said she would retire.
Candidates for the post who have already filed include former Manatee County Commissioner Jane Von Hahmann, and first-time political candidate Rodney P. Smithley, a Bradenton businessman. Both are Republicans.
