A report out of Miami has people urging Dr. Ben Carson to seek the seat.
From the Miami New Times:
The race to replace Marco Rubio in the Senate is already one of the strangest soap-opera-worthy down-ballot races in the nation, and it might get even more bizarre. GOP operatives are apparently pressuring Ben Carson to make an official exit from the presidential primary to run for the U.S. Senate in Florida instead.
Carson sent an email to supporters yesterday that he sees no "political path forward in light of last evening’s Super Tuesday primary results” and will sit out tonight's GOP debate. He has not, however, officially exited the race, but he's expected to make a major announcement tomorrow at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C.
Could that announcement involve jumping into the Senate race? Maybe. The retired neurosurgeon lives in Palm Beach after all.
It was Carson himself who first signaled there was interest in his dropping out to run for Senate instead at a rally in Irving, Texas, last week.Beats my idea of giving him a morning radio show,"Wake Up To Carson."
Or was that "Wake Up, Carson"?
