New York Magazine’s Greg Sargent reports that the oft-debated reason for Pirro’s delayed announcement may have been more personal than political. Last month, her mother was diagnosed with colon cancer.
“At that moment, my life changed and everything fell by the wayside,” Pirro told New York. “I was focused on making a decision. I’d sat down with a piece of paper to do the pros and cons. But then I got the news, and I threw away the paper. My mom became my focus.”
The Politicker hears that Pirro will announce her run for Senate this Wednesday at the Waldorf.
