|Description||Former Rep. Chris Shays (R-Conn.) told Roll Call he is "very interested" in launching a Senate bid to replace retiring Sen. Joe Lieberman (I). |
"We are looking into it very closely," Shays said Friday, noting that he had some personal issues to work out first.
The interest from Shays, a moderate 10-term Congressman defeated in 2008 by Rep. Jim Himes (D), comes the same day Hartford attorney Brian K. Hill, another Republican, announced his Senate candidacy.
