The word on the street says Chris Matthews is preparing to run for the Senate in 2010 in his home state of Pennsylvania.
While I would love the senate seat, I wouldn’t lose much sleep if Arlen Specter won re-election. I wonder why Matthews didn’t run against Santorum in 2006 instead of “eh” Senator Bob Casey jr.
A Matthews run for the Senate would create an interesting situation for MSNBC. How do you cover the campaign of one of your top anchors? What happens if Matthews loses?
Regardless, maybe Matthews can get Obama to endorse him to return the favor for Matthews practically endorsing Obama during the Democratic primary.
