Sofia Vergara Beau Won’t Run for Senate

Nick Loeb, the boyfriend of “Modern Family” actress Sofia Vergara, won’t run for the Senate, he said today.

According to the St. Petersburg Times, the Republican cited his health as the reason for passing on a run against Sen. Bill Nelson (D). Loeb was hurt in a car accident last year.

The wealthy scion of a political family told Roll Call over the summer that he was seriously considering a bid.

The current GOP contenders to take on Nelson are former state House Majority Leader Adam Hasner, former Sen. George LeMieux, former Ruth’s Chris CEO Craig Miller and retired Army Col. Mike McCalister. Rep. Connie Mack IV will officially enter the race soon. Recent polls have shown that Mack begins as the frontrunner in the GOP race.
