Gallagher: I'm still in (for now)



Fresh off new speculation in Wednesday's Miami Herald that he's getting out of the governor's race, Republican chief financial officer Tom Gallagher said Wednesday morning that he's staying put. The candidate, visiting an elementary school in the Villages, acknowledged that he talked this past weekend with supporters about whether he stays in.

"They're free to do what they want to do, but this is what I'm doing...Right now that's where my head is at,'' Gallagher said when asked about staying in the race for the Sept. 5 primary against Charlie Crist.
