Bye-Bye Harold

Rats Eric, it looks like we will not have Harold Ford, Jr of Tennesee New York to kick around, from Mike Memoli. Real Clear Polics: [1]

Former Tennessee Rep. Harold Ford (D) has announced that he will not challenge appointed Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D) this year. The news is a second dose of good news for Empire State Democrats, meaning the party will likely avoid a Senate primary and a gubernatorial primary following David Paterson’s (D) announcement on Friday

From what I saw from both Ford and Gillibranad,  Ford seemed like the stronger candidate.   Both were in Rochester recently.  Only Ford gave any indication he actually knew where he was.
