The Florida Republican -- who supported the recall effort -- says he's staying out of the Miami-Dade mayor's race -- and won't say for whom he might vote.
"I know everyone who is running, I think they're all good people but I really haven't given any thought to it yet," he said. "I hope they'll earn my vote, just like every other voter out there whose vote has to be earned."
He 's also staying out of the Republican primary for U.S. Senate -- despite the GOP'ers who are interested in running invoking his name as often as they can.
"I think the best role I can play is to ensure that the parties federal efforts are well organized and funded," he said. He plans to campaign with the nominee, adding, "I intend to continue to work with Sen. Bill Nelson on all the key issues that involve our state...but when election time comes I'm going to support the Republican nominee."
