Haridopolos Ends US Senate Bid (VIDEO)


Florida Senate President Mike Haridopolos has ended his US Senate campaign.

“Today, I am announcing that I will no longer be a candidate for the United States Senate, nor will I seek any other office this year or next. Instead, I am re-dedicating myself to finishing the job you sent me to do here in Florida. This was a very difficult decision for me, and my family, but this is the right decision. To those who have supported me in my race for Senate, know that while I may be ending this campaign, I will not give up the fight.”

In this YouTube video, Haridopolos vows to not seek any other office this year or next year.

Another Republican To Jump Into Senate Race


AP reporting Craig Miller will announce his bid for US Senate. Miller, former CEO of Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, appeared last month on Fox News touting his business experience.

“Miller, who placed third in a five-way race for Congress last year, plans to fly around the state with stops in Orlando, Tampa, Naples, West Palm Beach and Jacksonville to make the announcement.”

“Miller was forced to leave Ruth’s Chris in 2008 after the chain’s profits dropped and stock value fell nearly 70 percent. He was given a $2.4 million severance package, the Orlando Sentinel reported at the time. He previously served as CEO of Uno Restaurant Holdings Corp. He also had volunteered for the Air Force during the Vietnam War.”
