Nick Loeb suspense: Senate race, girlfriend Sofia Vergara’s Emmy nominationby George Bennett | July 20th, 2011
“The Emmys are Sept. 18 and I’ll probably make a decision after that.”
So says Delray Beacher Nick Loeb, the boyfriend of Modern Family actress and Emmy nominee Sofia Vergara, when discussing the possibility he’ll enter the 2012 race for the Republican U.S. Senate nomination. Loeb flirted with a Senate run earlier this year, then appeared to drop it. But after Mike Haridopolos quit the race Monday, Loeb said on Twitter that he’s looking “more closely” at running.
“Now that Mike Haridopolos has dropped out of the race I’m sure there’s going to be other people who are interested in running,” Loeb said today. “I probably won’t be making a decision until sometime after Labor Day. I would say more toward the end of September…The Emmys are Sept. 18 and I’ll probably make a decision after that. Right now I’m supporting Sofia and her career.”
