No U.S. Senate run for Debbie Wasserman Schultz


There will be no Debbie Wasserman Schultz for Senate campaign, the Weston Democrat said Tuesday, adding that she will instead seek reelection to her congressional seat in 2016.

A day earlier, Wasserman Schultz wouldn't reveal her plans, though she sounded less than interested in a statewide race.

Wasserman Schultz's announcement, which she made on CNN, comes the day after former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist also said he won't run for Senate. The two decisions pave the way for U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy of Jupiter to launch his campaign. He's expected to do so next week.

Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio appears ready to forgo reelection to run for president.
