Busi­ness­man “Al­ligator Ron” Ber­ger­on (R) says “he is … ‘reas­on­ably ser­i­ously’ … run­ning for gov­ernor in 2018.” He “ex­pects to make a de­cision with­in four months or so. Asked if he would be cap­able of spend­ing as much money as” Gov. Rick Scott (R) “did in 2010 — about $75 mil­lion — Ber­ger­on said, ‘I could,’ but has made no de­cision.”

Ber­ger­on: “I’ve had an aw­ful lot of people ap­proach me. … I think I have to first of all look at my fam­ily and how it would ef­fect my fam­ily and make the de­cision after that.” (Tampa Bay Times)
