Ritter sees an opportunity in Wexler's seat

Broward County Mayor Stacy Ritter is on an airplane this morning -- she had wanted a vacation after the fiasco with her father pointing a gun at her last week. But it seems Ritter can't escape the news.

Ritter's name is among those at the top of the list who may run for Robert Wexler's seat in Congress. Her husband Russ Klenet says that Ritter is "seriously considering it'' but waiting for Wexler to make his official announcement today about his resignation.

Parkland Mayor Michael Udine said he will run for Ritter's seat if it opens up. School Board Member Stephanie Kraft could not be reached for comment regarding whether she would run for the county seat. Coral Springs Mayor Scott Brook said he would not run for Ritter's seat and plans to run for Ari Porth's seat in the Legislature when it opens up in the future.
