The article reports that Senator Rod Smith Democrat-Gainesville, entered the 2006 race for governor in Florida yesterday, joining seven other candidates for the office. He was state attorney for the Eighth Judicial Circuit from 1992 to 2000, which is based in Alachua County, where Gainesville is the county seat. As a member of the Legislative Budget Commission for the upcoming session that starts March 8, Smith said the state needs to keep its ratio of debt service to revenues below 6 percent, which is a legislative target.
