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. Unfortunately, many of our economic woes have been created by government intervention and politicians who believe themselves to be economic “experts.”
I believe that my experience and qualifications would make me well-suited to serve Connecticut, especially during a time when Washington needs fewer career politicians and more people with real-world financial experience that can be a voice of reason and help prevent the continued intrusion of government into our lives, jobs, and pocketbooks.
I urge you to sign up below to be the first to know about my decision, because together we can take back Washington.

Current Connecticut Senator Democrat Chris Dodd continues to receive scrutiny for his involvement in Countrywide’s VIP program.
Republicans on the House Oversight Committee plan to continue to push for an investigation into a high-profile VIP program at mortgage lender Countrywide Financial that benefited several government officials, including two Democratic senators.
…Democrat Sens. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) and Kent Conrad (N.D.) have repeatedly denied any knowledge of receiving preferential treatment. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), ranking member on the Oversight panel, has strongly sought an investigation, saying the program was a broader and deeper effort to gain influence.
“For more than a year, we have been trying to expose the size and scope of the Countrywide VIP program,” Kurt Bardella, a spokesman for Issa. “I don’t know how the Speaker and Democratic leaders will be able to hide from the truth while the proof that can answer our questions is just one subpoena away.”
In contrast, Peter Schiff has a consistent record of giving honest economic anaylsis. Here are some of his recent media appearances:
