Supporters of permabear Peter Schiff want him to take on Chris Dodd (CT) in the 2010 Senate race. This just popped into my inbox:
In less than six weeks, the Peter Schiff for Senate 2010 Facebook group has exploded past 1,000 new members. Liberty minded individuals are flocking to the grassroots campaign to draft Peter Schiff for a potential 2010 senatorial bid against Chris Dodd in the state of Connecticut.
The Political Exploratory and Awareness Committee (PEAC) is extremely excited by the outpouring of interest in these early stages. Already, the possibility of a Schiff run has been featured in a local, Connecticut newspaper, several political blogs, and CNN Money. A logo re-design contest garnered seventy talented entries, and a top notch, highly professional campaign website is nearing completion.
No word yet on whether Schiff would consider a run (he has no connection to the group), but I'll bet he'd be at home among the Ron Paulites, libertarians and tax protesters.
