Orange County Commissioner Fred Brummer said Tuesday that he would not run again for the state Legislature next year.

The Apopka accountant faces county term limits next fall. But after that, Brummer had said he was pondering a return to Tallahassee, where he served from 1998 to 2006 until term limits forced him out.

“I have decided not to run,” Brummer said of another stint in the Legislature. He had looked to run for the Apopka-based Dist. 38 post now held by Republican Bryan Nelson.
