Former Ambassador to Vietnam Douglas "Pete" Peterson returned home to Florida on Wednesday, met by a group of about 50 supporters urging him to run for governor.

Peterson was greeted at the Tallahassee Regional Airport with Peterson campaign signs and chants of "Run, Pete, run."

"I recommend you do not throw these signs away," Peterson said.

However, the former three-term congressman also said he has not yet decided whether to join the race to challenge Republican Gov. Jeb Bush.
