Orlando Sentinel: Diebel to Run for Congress in 2012

March 25, 2011

The Orlando Sentinel recently reported Karen Diebel filed paperwork to prepare to run for an open Congressional seat in central Florida in 2012. Excerpt below:

“Former GOP congressional candidate Karen Diebel plans to make another run at it in 2012 — but doesn’t intend to challenge any of the current Republican incumbents, said a source who worked on Diebel’s 2010 campaign.

Instead, Diebel — also a former Winter Park commissioner — plans to compete in an expected new seat in Central Florida that the state gets because of its growth in population.

‘There will be an open seat, it’s going to be somewhere and she’s going to run for it,’ said Sarah Rumpf, a consultant on her 2010 campaign.  ‘I think she will do a great job.'”
