Allen West for Senate?

Is the Florida congressman weighing a Senate run? Politico reports:

Rep. Allen West (R-Florida) is considering a run for the U.S. Senate in 2012.

“If people want to talk to me about something like that it would be very disrespectful and rude for me to slam the door in their face,” West said on Monday night at a sold-out Palm Beach County tea party meeting, according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

“I cracked it open enough so that people can slip a note under the door and I can read the note and I can write back on the note ‘probably not’ and send it back out under the door,” the newspaper quotes West saying.

That’s in contrast to the “definitive ‘no’” that the Sun Sentinel reported West gave reporters and editors on Aug. 9 when asked “if there was ‘any chance’ he’d run for the Senate instead of seeking reelection.”
