NY-Sen: Republicans Still Looking for Hilary Challenger

Posted by Bob Brigham


A suburban New York City prosecutor said she's "flattered" to hear she's been mentioned by the White House as a possible candidate to run against Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton — but refused Monday to say if she'll run.

The New York Times reported Monday that a delegation from the White House Office of Political Affairs had met with state Republican leaders to discuss the possibility of Westchester County District Attorney Jeanine Pirro challenging Clinton in 2006.


A son-in-law of the late President Richard Nixon, Edward Cox, plans to run for the U.S. Senate seat held by Hillary Clinton, Newsweek reported in its Web edition on Tuesday.

Considering Clinton's poll numbers, winning the GOP nomination is a total booby prize.

Also a nice article from the Village Voice this week showing how the R's are playing a particularly cynical brand of gender politics as they search for an opponent.

Pirro has some, uh, husband issues.
