Nader for Senate? Could Ralph Nader run for Senate in Connecticut? There is a possibility.
Glenn Thrush writes on Politico.com a number of people are asking Ralph Nader to for the Senate against incumbent Democrat Chris Dodd in 2010. Nader is a registered as a voter in Connecticut. Nader was quoted saying, “You can't believe the number of people of asking me [to run].”
Thrush writes, “Nader's entry as a third party candidate would be terrible news for Dodd, who is hoping to energize his liberal base in possible match-ups against GOP challengers Rob Simmons and Linda McMahon, who lead him in public polls.”
Thrush later added Nader is focused on reforms, not “electoral politics”. Even with that said, Nader has not made a decision on the Senate race.
