Watertown native Jeff Stabins won't run for congress

Jeff Stabins was just in the office to inform me that he's not running for office in the north country in 2012.
Mr. Stabins, a Republican elected official in Florida who grew up in the north country, flirted with the idea, but said he "tested the waters, and they’re a little too cold. I like the nice hot Gulf. I’m headed back, and I’m going to take on the powers that be one last time."
He's going to keep his home in Sackets Harbor, he said, and didn't rule out future runs.
"Twenty-fourteen, 2016, 2018, 2020 — the year of perfect vision," he said, adding, "2010 was the year of extraordinary vision."
Mr. Stabins, your presence in the race will be sorely missed.
