Read My Lips: Yes, No, Maybe
EPA Administrator Carol Browner has decided not to vie for an open Senate seat in her native Florida. Maybe. See what you make of this statement by EPA spokesperson Kim Rubey: “At this point, it’s not something she’s actively looking at. She believes she could win, but there are too many obligations she must meet to the EPA and environmental issues.” Rubey went on to note that the election is still a long way off. Browner may have received lukewarm signals of support from key Florida Dems, who want to avoid a divisive and costly primary selection process and appear to be rallying behind state Insurance Commissioner Bill Nelson’s candidacy for retiring Republican Sen. Connie Mack’s seat.
