Ford, Proud Banker, Would Be ‘Independent Democrat’

On Morning Joe earlier today, Harold Ford Jr. said, “I work at a bank, proud of it.”

Ford was also asked about a rumor that he’d run as an independent and said, “The thinking hadn’t progressed that far,” but, “if I run, I’ll run as a Democrat.” He added, “I think Democrats are looking for a stand-up, independent Democrat to represent the state. So, in that sense, I would run as an independent.”

On same-sex marriage, Ford said, “Senator Schumer and I have the exact same position on this. He switched, too.”

That is debatable.
