The New York Sun is reporting that Hardball’s Chris Mathews is once again entertaining the thought of running for the US Senate. Specifically, he was asked about taking on Republican Senator Arlen Specter in the 2010 Elections. That would also be the year that Pennsylvania would be elected its next Governor.
Mathews is a former President Carter staffer and is from the Philadelphia area. In that, he shares the home turf with Arlen in Philly. Arlen Specter typically does very well with both Republicans and Democrats in the Philly area.
