Harold Ford Jr. NOT running for Senate
Good News for New York! HFjr is NOT running for senate.
The New York Post reports that the former Tennessee congressman and rumored contender for Senator Kirsten Gillibrand's seat has decided not to run.
NY gay activists have rejected Harold Ford Jr because of his attempt to win the Senate seat in Tennessee by opposing marriage equality for gays and lesbians and voting TWICE for the anti-gay Federal Marriage Amendment!
This is what happens when politicians sacrifice the values they and their party supports just to win an election. And it didn't work!
