Aronberg rules out congressional bid

State Sen. Dave Aronberg of Greenacres admits to getting more than one call from fellow Democrats encouraging him to drop his bid for attorney general against state Sen. Dave Gelber of Miami Beach and run for the congressional seat to be vacated by Robert Wexler. And he says he's told them no way.

"I'm entirely focused on being attorney general,'' Aronberg said. "This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to win the AG seat that I've long coveted...I can do a lot more for the state as AG than I think I could as a member of Congress." 

Would have been mighty awkward for Aronberg to switch races after waxing poetic at Sunday's debate about how the attorney general job was his "life's ambitition'' and "dream job."
