Is Chris Matthews Ready to Run for The Senate?

Matthews_2.1.jpgA TVNewser tipster tells us about a situation in New Hampshire (which seems like a really long time ago, now) during the coverage of the primary there. MSNBC’s Chris Matthews was talking with a New Hampshire politician about the state of things in Washington.

Matthews told the local pol, “Nothing will get done in Washington until there is a large enough majority in the Senate — maybe I’ll run for Senate.” After explaining he was from Pennsylvania, Matthews said, “Casey pulled it off so it’s do-able.”

Matthews tells TVNewser, “I was being provocative as usual and having some fun with a friendly local politician. I’ve always dreamed of being a senator from Pennsylvania and everybody I know knows it. But, I also have the greatest and most perfect job for a guy like me and I have no plans to change that.”

For what it’s worth, Sen. Bob Casey, a Democrat, was elected to his first term in 2006. Sen. Arlen Specter, a Republican, was reelected to his fifth term in 2004.
