‘We have to change course’: Sen. Randolph Bracy hints at run for Florida governor in video

ORLANDO, Fla. — Democratic State Sen. Randolph Bracy strongly hinted that he will consider a run for Florida governor in campaign-style video uploaded to YouTube on Monday.

In the video, he outlined “the Bracy plan” for Florida, saying, “We need a governor who will work Democrats and Republicans to get us through this crisis.”

“Loved ones are dying. Jobs have disappeared. People are scared and looking for answers,” he said in the video. “To solve these problems, we have to change course.”

But in a telephone interview, Bracy said he is not announcing a run to challenge Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis.
