Schultz: Dems Asked Me To Run For Senate
January 6, 2010 at 8:16 AM (PT)
DIAL GLOBAL syndicated talker ED SCHULTZ said on MSNBC TODAY that he was contacted by the NORTH DAKOTA DEMOCRATIC PARTY and asked to consider running for the Senate seat being vacated by the retiring BYRON DORGAN (D-ND).
TV NEWSER reports that SCHULTZ said, "I did get a phone call this morning from the House Democratic leader, MERLE BOUCHER, and he asked me to consider a run for the Senate seat in the state of NORTH DAKOTA. I asked him very point blank, 'Is this an official ask?' He said, 'Yes, it is.'
"I'm flattered. I'm honored. I can't say that I'm even considering it right now. I've worked awful hard in my career to get to where I am right now. I've invested a lot of years to get the microphone, to have an opportunity to advocate for the middle class in this country. I'm in a different place right now. So we're a long way from any consideration. We're a long way from any kind of decision. I'm definitely flattered and honored by the phone call to be considered by someone of his stature."
