Will Weatherford might be in line to run the Legislature’s lower chamber next year, but the Wesley Chapel lawmaker didn’t want to weigh in much on a 2016 Florida Senate presidency race between Jack Latvala and Joe Negron while addressing the state’s delegation to the Republican National Convention, reports Jonathan Mattisse of TCPalm.
Weatherford did have a few words about how senators jockey for leadership. “I learned a long time ago as a House member that the politics of the Senate is the politics of the Senate, and to not engage in things you do not understand,” Weatherford said. “And I think I have a good understanding of the Florida House. I do not have a good understanding of the politics of the Senate. Therefore, I try to stay out of it.”
