King For Senate Still Possible?

King For Senate Still Possible?

Capitol Hill rag The Hill thinks so, including Krazy Steve's name in a list of House members who may be Senate kandidates. (I stole Krusty's dictionary this morning.)

King has been laying the fundraising and organizational groundwork for a Senate run for four years but said he is not yet in a position to make a decision on whether to run in 2008 against Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa).

King said he wanted to be sensitive to others who might be interested and declined to offer a timetable for his decision. “You know as much about it as my wife,” he said.

Bring it on, Stevie...

After that writing marathon yesterday (working on more), a few quick links.

Committee assignments:

Rep.-elect Dave Loebsack, a Mount Vernon Democrat, was recommended for the Committee on Education and the Workforce, which oversees education and labor issues. Loebsack had said during his campaign that he would seek a seat on the committee.

"This appointment will allow me to work to expand college access, support our public schools, and protect American workers," Loebsack said.

Hillary has folks over for dinner
, the Underrated One hears.

A loss last night in Iowa House 52 but the Dems never expected that one. A big win in Texas as Ciro Rodriguez wins the last US House seat in a runoff.

And just for fun, a talk with Mick Jones of the Clash.
