Haridopolos Running For Senate
Javier Manjarres of The Shark Tank reports that Mike Haridopolos told him that he is running for the U.S. Senate in 2012.
When I asked him directly if he is running for the U.S. Senate, Haridopolos said, ”Yes, I am in.”
The announcement will not come as a surprise to people that follow Florida politics. Haridopolos will make an official announcement. Haridopolos likely allowed Manjarres to break the story to tell campaign contributors he is open for business. If Haridopolos wins the primary he will have to deal with incumbent Bill Nelson's war chest and President Obama on the top of the ballot. Haridopolos has a tougher road to the Senate than Marco Rubio.
