Lobbyist's daughter is making big-money/run-for-office-style moves

Via Saint Petersblog:

Lauren Book, the telegenic founder of the sexual abuse advocacy group Lauren’s Kids, has raised nearly $235,000 for Leadership for Broward, a political committee she established earlier this month.

The formation of this political committee, along with Book’s already high profile in Tallahassee, is fueling speculation that the daughter of mega-lobbyist Ron Book will run for Eleanor Sobel’s state Senate seat in Broward County. Sobel is term-limited from running again in 2016.

Despite these tea leaves, Book, reached in New York, said she has not made a decision about entering politics.

“I have a strong desire to serve our community and our great State,” said Book. “I want to expand my engagement and service but I have made no final decisions on running yet.”
