TV Show Host Scarborough Weighs Senate Bid (BRENDAN FARRINGTON, 8/17/05, Associated Press)

Congressman turned political talk show host Joe Scarborough has a choice to make: renew his contract with NBC or challenge Katherine Harris for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate.

Scarborough said Wednesday that he has already talked with Sen.
Elizabeth Dole, who heads the National Republican Senatorial Committee, and plans to meet with Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman and White House officials next week about whether to get into the race to unseat Democrat Bill Nelson.

Either can beat Nelson and a good primary fight would serve the winner well.
