Tallahassee, FL (AP) - U.S. Senate candidate Craig Miller says
Washington needs more businessmen making decisions instead of
career politicians.

The retired restaurant executive from Winter Park told news editors attending the annual legislative session planning session hosted by The Associated Press that there are not enough champions for free enterprise in the U.S. Senate. Miller also pledged Wednesday that he'd serve just two terms if he becomes the nominee and goes on to defeat U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson in November.

Another GOP hopeful, retired Army Col. Mike McCalister, created
some buzz and several questions with his insistence that communism may be regaining a foothold in the U.S.
.
McCalister and Miller agreed that if voters want a politician in Washington, then they're not likely to prevail. The other three
Republican hopefuls did not attend.
