(Newser) – Harold Ford Jr., the former congressman and political commentator who’s been making waves in New York political circles since moving from Tennessee, won’t challenge fellow Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand for her US Senate seat after all. “I heard from Harold Ford and he has decided not to run,” a source tells the Post. “After giving it considerable thought and talking it over with his wife, he reached the conclusion that he would not be running, although he said he would like to remain active in the Democratic Party here.”
