Ford vs. Gillibrand for New York Senate Seat?

The last time we suggested that Harold Ford Jr. was interested in the New York U.S. Senate seat formerly held by Hillary Clinton, it was when Clinton surrendered her seat to become Secretary of State. Sometime Memphian Ford denied any such hankering at the time, and Kirsten Gillibrand got the nod.

Now Politico.com is saying that Ford, at least a part-time New York resident these days, is hankering hard and heavy and may indeed run against Gillibrand, — presumably in the 2012 Democratic primary.

Here’s the Politico story: http://www.politico.com/blogs/glennthrush/1109/Ford_vs_Gillibrand.html
