Harold Ford Jr. Explains why He Won't Run for the U.S. Senate; Says Democrats "are Scared" - Video 3/2/10
Ford said "Democrats are scared" about what is going to happen in this Fall's midterm election. He does not want to see the seat go to Republicans, and therefore, he did not want to run a race that would weaken prospects of losing New York.
What Ford did not say is that he was way down in every poll in a head-to-head matchup against Gillibrand, which may have something to do with his decision!
Ford says Democrats "are scared" because they know how upset voters are around the country.
