Zuckerman Not Running

The Daily News reports that its owner, Mort Zuckerman, isn’t running for the Senate after all.

“I was encouraged by many major political figures in New York to look closely at running for Senate,” Mr. Zuckerman said.

“However, at this time, it is very difficult to see how I can devote the necessary time to either a campaign, or to working in Washington, if I were to win.”

Mr. Zuckerman pointed out that he has a young family, which is the most important focus in his life.

Politico‘s Ben Smith reported this morning that a new baby recently appeared in Mr. Zuckerman’s home, but friends felt it would be rude to ask where exactly it came from.
