Agbede was running in the 2012 election for the U.S. Senate, representing Florida. Agbede sought the nomination on the Republican ticket.[1] The signature filing deadline for candidates wishing to run was May 7, 2012. The primary elections were held on August 14, 2012.

Agbede indicated interest in running in 2012, but failed to file before the June 8, 2012 filing deadline.[1]

The University of Virginia's Center for Politics published an article called Sabato's Crystal Ball on March 22, 2012, detailing the eight races in the Senate in 2012 that will decide the political fate of which party will end up with control in 2013.[2] The Senate seat in Florida is the toss up state ranked second in likelihood of ending up Democratic, behind New Mexico's Senate seat.[2] Incumbent Bill Nelson's mediocre approval rating is the reasoning behind the "toss-up" classification of the Senate seat, but Nelson is expected to gain Democratic support in time for the election in 2012.[2] Nelson is also expected to face significant opposition from Connie Mack, U.S. representative from the 14th District, in the general election on November 6, 2012.[2]
