Putnam Not Seeking Senate

Congressman Adam Putnam told The Buzz he has no interest in running for Mel Martinez's seat.

"I am not giving serious consideration to the Senate seat," he tells Buzz. "You could say my interests lie elsewhere."

Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio generate more buzz with Florida conservatives. That could change if Bush and Rubio don't run. Putnam would deal with a crowded GOP field if Bush and Rubio didn't run. If Punam won he would likely face Alex Sink or Steve Gelber. Putnam is not going to give up a safe House seat for a long shot.

Putnam is 34 years-old. There is still time to seek higher office.
