In response to a strong grassroots draft effort, economist Peter Schiff is giving serious consideration to a run in the 2010 Connecticut Senate race. On August 7th, send a message that dumping hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars into failing financial, auto, and insurance firms will not be tolerated. Help remove the man from office who gave the Fed their bailout authority and put in the loopholes which allowed the likes of AIG to continue receiving hundreds of millions in bonuses for poor performance.
As you know, I have been seriously considering running for U.S. Senate against Chris Dodd.
Everywhere you turn there is evidence of just how bad our economy is getting. Growing unemployment, families that are struggling to put food on the table, and retirees that are having to make the choice between doing without or joining the millions of others that are looking for a job.

In contrast, Peter Schiff has a consistent record of giving honest economic anaylsis. Here are some of his recent media appearances:
