Though his political aspirations have so far remained unsuccessful, Craig Miller is still vying for a Florida Senate seat next year.


Before taking the top slot at Ruth's Chris, he served as CEO for Uno Restaurant Holdings. 

He was pushed out of his Ruth's Chris position in 2008 after

profits dropped precipitously along with most of its stock.


Now, going up against Democrat Bill Nelson, he enters a field with at least eight contenders. He already spent almost a million dollars of his own money when he lost running for a House seat last year.
