Former Tennessee Congressman Harold Ford Jr. (D) writes about his consideration for a U.S. Senate run in the New York Post today. Here’s an excerpt:
It’s true: I am strongly considering running for the United States Senate.
I do so because our best as a nation has always come when we test our ideas and ourselves, and when we trust competition to refine the steel of our convictions and the truth of our arguments.
Some have already questioned whether I should be running.
Others are falsifying my record in public life.
New Yorkers deserve a free election.
New Yorkers expect a politics where politicians do what’s right based on independent judgment, free of political bosses trying to dictate.
He also notes that he “moved to New York more than three years ago, have been a New York resident for more than a year and am a registered voter in New York City.”
