Alan Grayson readying for 2018 campaign






Look out Dan Webster,  Alan Grayson, the outgoing liberal firebrand congressman whom you defeated in 2010 (despite his TV ad dubbing you "Taliban Dan" because of your religious views), has filed paperwork to run against you in 2018. Grayson ran unsuccessfully for the Democratic U.S. Senate nomination this year against Patrick Murphy, who went on to lose to Marco Rubio.

But Grayson, D-Orlando, told The Buzz he hasn't decided what office, if any, he will run for in 2018 and filed the paperwork because he had raised money and was legally required to.

"I could have picked any number between one and 27," he said of the filing indicating he is a candidate for Congressional District 11. "My options certainly are open."
