DescriptionFormer 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.
