By Buddy Nevins, BrowardBeat.com, Special to EyesOnNews.com, Jan 16, 2015 – Former state Sen. Nan Rich, who denounced Charlie Crist as a flip-flopper in last year’s Democratic primary for governor, is doing a little flip-flopping of her own.
Rich has changed her position on “absolutely” not running for the county commission.
She has been making calls to gauge the support for a commission race. Her phone calls were made to office holders and some her long-time backers, several sources told Browardbeat.com.
The former Florida Senate Democratic Leader from Weston lives in Commission District 1, which will be open next year. District 1 is now held by County Commissioner Marty Kiar, who is giving it up to run for Broward Property Appraiser.
Rich’s phone calls surprised Broward pols since she was so insistent five months ago that she was not interested in becoming a commissioner.
