Fla. Sen. Dan Gelber To Run For Attorney General
Jun 8, 2009
The Associated Press
Miami Beach State Sen. Dan Gelber announced Monday he will now run for the Attorney General's seat after weeks of speculation.
He made the announcement just days after State Sen. Dave Aronberg announced he would run for the same seat. Aronberg's district includes Fort Myers.
In his blog, Gelber wrote that his experience would make him a natural fit for the Attorney General seat.
"After spending nearly a decade as a federal prosecutor, the job of Attorney General is a place where I believe I can best serve our state," Gelber wrote on his website on June 4th. "Right now, I am working with party officials to help ensure we have the strongest ticket to deliver our message of change for Florida. My hope was that there would be time for all of us to be thoughtful and to unify, but given Senator Aronberg's decision, I will announce my plans soon."
Those plans now include a run for the Attorney General a spot that was vacated when current AG Bill McCollum announced his plan to run for governor.
The Democrats were looking for a strong contender against the Republicans in the Senate race in 2010. The Democrats backed Congressman Kendrick Meek.
Meek will face off against Florida Gov. Charlie Crist and former House Speaker Marco Rubio who are the leading contenders for the GOP nomination.
Gelber had entered the race in January.
Gelber graduated from the University of Florida with a law degree. He served eight years in the state House before being elected to the Senate.
He also spent 10 years as federal prosecutor. He's married to Joan Silverstein and the couple has three children.
