Peter Rudy for Congress?

By Jim Saunders

Amid speculation about possible candidates to replace retiring Congressman C.W. Bill Young, The Tampa Tribune tossed former state House Speaker Peter Rudy Wallace’s name into the mix.

The Tribune reported that U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor, D-Fla., suggested to Wallace that he consider the race. Wallace, a St. Petersburg attorney, was the most-recent Democratic House speaker, serving from 1994 to 1996 and lost a bid for state education commissioner in 1998.
