Putnam: No plans (now) to run for governor

Despite Gov. Rick Scott's rock-bottom poll numbers, Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam says he has no plans to challenge Scott for the Republican nomination for governor in 2014. Putnam, a former member of Congress who is viewed as a rising star in state politics, told reporters he is "not giving consideration" to a run for governor (of course, a lot can change between now and then).

"I'm very happy as Florida's commissioner of agriculture, and looking forward to continue to serve as Florida's commissioner of agriculture if the people will have me," Putnam said. Pressed to give a yes-or-no answer, he added: "No, I'm not giving consideration to running for governor."

Ask Adam Putnam how he proposes to protect children, now that he has taken over the public school nutrition, from the agriculture industry's pervasive use of the herbicide roundup and genetically modified crops made to withstand the potent weed killer that has been shown to cause birth defects.
