Zuckerman for NY’s Senate seat?

Zuckerman talks with N.Y. GOP

Real estate and media mogul Mort Zuckerman has reached out to New York Republican Party Chairman Ed Cox about a possible Senate campaign this year, Cox told the Albany Times Union:

“I have talked with Mr. Zuckerman, and he has expressed an interest in running for the Senate,” Cox told the paper. “He’s very concerned about the direction this country is going and, as I think many Americans are, as the most recent elections have proven, whether Massachusetts or here in New York, Nassau County, Westchester County. He has always wanted to serve his country and thinks perhaps he can serve by running for the United State Senate.”

The New York Times reported last Friday that Zuckerman was toying with the idea of challenging Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand as a Bloomberg-style centrist Republican, but Zuckerman avoided direct comment in an interview with POLITICO.
