Former Crist chief-of-staff for AG?by George Bennett | May 13th, 2009
WEST PALM BEACH — George LeMieux, who was Gov. Charlie Crist’s chief of staff before becoming chairman of the powerhouse Gunster Yoakley law firm, said tonight he’s “seriously considering” a run for attorney general.
LeMieux was in town giving a summary of the 2009 legislative session for a Norton Museum of Art audience that was sprinkled with elected officials, business leaders and attorneys.
LeMieux was deputy attorney general when Crist was AG. With Attorney General Bill McCollum expected to run for governor, no field-clearing Republican names have been mentioned as potential AG candidates. Potential Democratic candidates include state Sen. Dave Aronberg, D-Greenacres.
“I have a calling for public service and I think the attorney general’s the best job in government,” LeMieux said. “If it’s something I’m going to do, I will make that decision quickly.”
