SaintPetersblog.com is reporting that Morning Joe co-host and former congressman Joe Scarborough mingled with a few House leaders at the Capitol Wednesday, including House Speaker Will Weatherford.
In tow: his brother George Scarborough, a Pensacola consultant mulling a run for the Panhandle House seat formerly held by Clay Ford, who died last week of cancer. George Scarborough lost the Republican primary for that seat to Ford in a 2007 special election.
“It wasn’t a meeting to discuss his brother’s potential candidacy for Ford’s seat,” said Weatherford spokesman Ryan Duffy of the impromptu meeting. “The speaker had never met him and wanted to introduce himself and say hi.”
