Matthews Senate Run Talk Continues

matthews_10-22.jpgSo, will MSNBC’s Chris Matthews be moving from the anchor chair to the political arena? The question has certainly been asked before (in February, and April, and May, and August…), but there appears to be new details as this election winds down.

The New York Times’ Bill Carter writes on The Caucus blog about a dinner last week between Matthews and one of Sen. Barack Obama‘s biggest fundraisers, UBS president Robert Wolf.

Said Matthews of the dinner: “Bob is a wonderful guy, and he told me we were going to talk about the political year and business and nothing about any election prospects.”

Wolf said, “It came up, but when you have 12 guys at a dinner you move from topic to topic.”

Once the election ends in two weeks, the Senate talk may pick up. TVNewser has learned that Democratic donors have received exploratory calls regarding a possible foray into politics for Matthews.
