Peter Agre Decides Not to Run for Senate in Minnesota

Today's Strib announced:

"News reports last June revealed my intention to explore a possible run in the 2008 election for the U.S. Senate seat from my home state of Minnesota. After much deliberation, I've concluded that this is not the right time for me to enter the race." (Peter Agre)

This is unfortunate. I am not sure that Al Franken can unseat Senator Blowdry. So that leaves Mike Ceresi. Given Senator Blowdry's close association with Shrub, it is hard to believe that he can't be defeated. But politics is very scary.
