Daily News’ Zuckerman won’t challenge Gillibrand

Won’t anyone challenge Kirsten Gillibrand for senator from New York? She’s a disgraceful, unelected far-left lapdog.

From Wednesday’s New York Times:

Zuckerman Decides Not to Run Against Gillibrand for Senate
By MICHAEL BARBARO
Published: March 2, 2010
Mortimer B. Zuckerman, the real estate and media tycoon, has decided not to run for Senator Kirsten E. Gillibrand’s seat this year, he said in an interview Tuesday night.

Mr. Zuckerman, 72, said that despite encouragement from dozens of friends and strangers who had urged him to run, he could not abandon his obligations to his businesses and family, especially his two young children.

(…)
In conversations, Mr. Zuckerman told party officials that missteps by Democrats had given the Republicans a rare chance of retaking a Senate seat in New York, which has not elected a Republican senator since 1992.

1992! Al D’Amato was on Hannity’s “Great American Panel” last night. Oh, the memories.

New York is done.
