Florida’s Chief Financial Officer could be tossing his hat into the U.S. Senate Race. As Sascha Cordner reports, Jeff Atwater says a number of people have asked him to enter the Republican Primary for Senate.

Atwater says he’s seriously considering a U.S. Senate bid, after several conservatives asked him to take a hard look at the idea. While some say the current hopefuls are not doing enough to energize GOP voters, Florida’s Republican Party Chairman Lenny Curry says that’s not true.
