Justice: "Pretty Darn Close" to running, IF



S016 IF Congressman C.W. Bill Young retires.

At the Young Democrats Breakfast, Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz announced this morning that State Sen. Charlie Justice may soon have "big news."

So when Buzz caught up with Justice this is what he had to say:

"(Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz) has been very supportive of my career and she’s been very encouragaing of me to run for Congress....If (Congressman Young) retires, the seat hasn’t been open in 40 years, everyone should take a good look at it. Am I looking at it? Absolutely. Does that mean 100 percent that I'm going to run? No, but it's pretty darn close."
