Is Dockery throwing her hat into the ring for the 2012 senatorial race?
Dockery Takes Her Shot
By David Cantanese
Paula Dockery, the state senator who briefly ran for the GOP nomination for governor earlier this year, is the latest Florida politician to take a shot at likely U.S. Senate candidate Mike Haridopolos.
On her Facebook page, Dockery links to a Palm Beach Post story that outlines the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee’s opening attack on Haridopolos for violating the state’s ethics laws.
The Florida Democratic Party, eager for a crowded 2012 GOP Senate primary, sends the link along asking, “Is Paula Dockery gearing up for a Senate run too?”
Dockery’s name hasn’t been mentioned among the list of potential contenders, but this may be an indication that Haridopolos, the state senate president, isn’t her choice to battle Sen. Bill Nelson.
