No, not the car company, Harold Ford. He is considering a run for Senator from New York as a Democrat, against Gillibrand.
This is weird on a couple of levels. First, nothing that I've ever heard him say on television led me to believe he is a Democrat, or could even pose as one.
Plus, just a year ago he was running for the Senate in Tennessee. Don't you have to live in the state to be a Senator from that state? Maybe New York is special; we did have Hillary Clinton parachuting in to be Senator from New York, as a former resident of Arkansas by way of DC, about twenty minutes after her husband left the White House.
