Dan Gelber has an announcement!

Democrats gathered at the annual Jefferson-Jackson dinner talked and ate while many elected officials spoke, but the room grew quiet when state sen. Dan Gelber said "I have an announcement to make.''

Many have been expecting Gelber to officially drop out of the U.S. Senate race, leaving Kendrick Meek as the frontrunner. Instead, Gelber cracked a joke by announcing that the owner of a silver Chrysler left his car lights on.

Later in his speech, Gelber said that he is ''stepping back'' from his campaign to consider other possibilities -- which isn't much different than what he had previously said. Some party activists are hoping he will run for attorney general instead.

Dan should definitely run for something else, this primary is Kendrick's...he has no chance at all considering his lack luster fundraising and almost 0% name ID state wide. AG would be a perfect fit for Dan, and he would have a real chance at winning, but I think he's too scared to run bc he'll lose his state senate seat and if he doesn't win the AG race he will quickly become irrelevant. So his choice is to be a lowly state senator, in the minority, or potentially the state's AG. Let's see if he has the chuztpah to make a statewide run. Personally I doubt it, but would love to see it.
