Former state Sen. Ellyn Bogdanoff isn’t ready to say whether she’ll be a candidate this year to return to the state Senate.

After seven years in the Florida House, she was elected to a Broward-Palm Beach County Senate district in 2010 after winning a bruising primary fight with then-state Rep. Carl Domino, R-Jupiter.

Before the 2012 election, boundaries were changed to reflect population changes uncovered in the 2010 Census, and the district became more Democratic.

Bogdanoff, a Fort Lauderdale Republican, lost an even more bruising general election campaign to state Sen. Maria Sachs, a Democrat who had more of a base in Palm Beach County, where most of the district lies.

Bogdanoff may make an attempt to return to the Senate in 2014, a year more likely to be favorable to Republicans because Democratic turnout falls more in mid-term elections between presidential contests.

On Wednesday, she said she’d probably announce what she’ll do “by February.”

But she didn’t want to give up anything, despite several attempts by me. Examples:

Early or late February? Maybe middle of the month, she responded.

Are you leaning one way or another? “I stand up straight,” she said, not leaning at all.
