Florida Senate Seat-interesting

Kevin Burns who has been rumored for months to be running for the Florida Senate seat declared earlier today.

Naked Politics:

North Miami Mayor Kevin Burns, the city's first openly gay mayor, is not ready to end his political career. Burns, who will be forced out by term limits in May, is making a bid for the U.S. Senate seat occupied by Martinez, who will leave next year.

Burns, a Democrat, confirmed that he's running -- but declined to comment further until the official campaign kickoff Tuesday.

and later on Meeks fires back by showing why he's the favorite:

Rep. Kendrick Meek today picked up the endorsement of Florida's SEIU - the Service Employees International Union - a potentially big factor in the Democratic primary.

Union president Monica Russo said the union was "estatic and proud" to endorse Meek's run for the US Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Mel Martinez. She called Meek a "fighter" with "conviction, compassion and guts."
