Ah. In order to be governor of Florida, one must be 30 years old, and have lived in the state for the previous 7 years. I could see him maintaining an offseason home in Fla for that purpose. He could exercise huge influence from such a platform, including advancing his religious ideals. I see it as highly possible.
Unless he just wants to start a ministry, he's going to need a platform from which to wield influence and, frankly, power.
