This just in: Harold Ford Jr. has opted not to challenge Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand for the Democratic U.S. Senate nomination.
No statement yet, but the Post quotes Assemblyman Vito Lopez: “I heard from Harold Ford and he has decided not to run. After giving it considerable thought and talking it over with his wife, he reached the conclusion that he would not be running, although he said he would like to remain active in the Democratic Party here.
The decision arrives after spending the weekend in Bermuda, keynoting the the Bermuda International Business Association’s annual conference.
