Just what the GOP needed: Another candidate for the US Senate, this time it's Dave Wheldon

Former U.S. Rep. Dave Weldon has been saying for a few days he was very likely going to jump into the Republican primary for the U.S. Senate seat open this year in Florida. He’s made up his mind

On his website, Weldon says “someone has to provide a conservative solution to the problems the administration has created and the Senate has endorsed. I’ll work to change Washington, not be changed by Washington. That was why I left my medical practice in 1994 and ran and was elected to the U.S. House where I served 14 years before returning to medicine.”
