Is John Morgan Planning a Surprise Run for U.S. Senate? Here are the facts:


This points to a more likely motive that he seeks to run for U.S. Senate. Further evidence comes from the fact that Morgan cares deeply about legislative issues, and believes firmly that lawmakers aren’t doing enough – especially when it comes to the issue of legalizing marijuana. The Senate would be a much better tool for Morgan to exact that agenda than being Governor.

The fact that Morgan chose the political frontlines of campaigning for medical marijuana as a constitutional amendment in Florida versus lobbying for a bill out of Tallahassee is hugely indicative of his style. He doesn’t want to herd cats, as he would have to do as Governor. He doesn’t want to lobby. He wants to lead the charge. He’d rather propose a bill and get it to the finish line than try and get a deeply Republican legislature to do anything.

If Morgan is already starting to knock on Nelson as “ineffective,” that sounds like a campaign ad in the making.
