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: 
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.
