Nelson’s ‘No plans…no intention’ stance on governor’s race not final word for Hastings

by George Bennett | December 9th, 2013

Former Palm Beach County Commissiner Burt Aaronson, who backs Charlie Crist for governor, chats with Sen. Bill Nelson outside the Palm Beach County elections office last week.

In case you’ve missed the last several months of non-denial denials from Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, he has “no plans” and “no intention” or running for governor in 2014.

That’s not the same as saying he won’t run.

So reporters will keep asking him about the race. And people like U.S. Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Miramar, will continue to see a Nelson candidacy as a possibility. Hastings said he has asked Nelson twice to consider getting into the race and “each time, he indicated to me that he did not think he would enter the race.”

But Hastings doesn’t consider that the end of the story.

“There is something to be said for people entering a race like that late and being actively sought,” Hastings said. “And I do know this: that there are those who have actively sought to have him enter the governor’s race.”

  1. Plan-less Bill Says:

    “No plans, no intentions” also is a good description of his past service to Florida in the U.S. Senate. He is a total back-bencher when it comes to leadership.

  2. Sandy Says:

    Burt Aaronson just wont go and stay away. Thank You God for term limits.
