McCollum, Boyd out of Senate race

So much for the free-for-all expected for Florida's open seat. Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum and U.S. Rep. Allen Boyd are the latest politicians to say thanks, but no thanks to a Senate campaign.

"Unless circumstances change it is my intention, at the appropriate time, to announce that I will be seeking re-election as Floridas Attorney General," McCollum says in a press release, leaving the door open every so slightly.

"With 12 years of service under my belt, I am in the unique position in the House to build on past legislative accomplishments, and I will have an even stronger voice in policy decisions that will affect our economy and fiscal outlook,'' Boyd says in a press release. "In these difficult economic times, my background in business, my reputation as a consensus builder, and my commitment to fiscal responsibility are needed in Congress."
