Three Senators Consider State House Bids
"In a sign of growing Democratic powerlessness and
despair in Washington after Tuesday's elections," Sen.
Christopher Dodd (D-CT) "is considering running for
governor of Connecticut in 2006," the New York Times
"Should Mr. Dodd choose to make a run for governor, he
would be among three Democratic senators from the New
York region giving thought to such a leap,
particularly in the wake of Tuesday's elections, when
Republicans expanded their majority in the Senate with
a net gain of four seats."
The other two, Sen. Jon Corzine (D-NJ) and Sen. Chuck
Schumer (D_NY), "are said to be dispirited over their
continued minority status -- as well as the reality
that their party does not appear to have a shot at
winning the majority any time soon."
