Joe Scarborough for Senate?



A month ago, MSNBC's Joe Scarborough told Buzz he was "not at all" interested in running for Mel Martinez's Senate seat. Now, he's cracking that door back open. From the Herald-Tribune:


But the former congressman from Pensacola said he may run for office again, maybe even the U.S. Senate in 2010.

"I haven't closed it off," said Scarborough, a Republican who is scheduled to address the Manatee County Republican Party at its annual Lincoln Day Dinner on Feb. 20. "I've been getting some calls from some fundraisers in Florida."

Scarborough said he is also hearing from other U.S. senators who want him to run for the seat that Sen. Mel Martinez announced he is leaving next year.
