A report in the Associated Press listed many of the various operatives of the Clinton administration that are running or have run for political office. Here's the list:
- Charley King, AG candidate in New York - Kristen Gillibrand, Congressional candidate, 20th NY - Sheldon Whitehouse, US Senate candidate in Rhode Island - Tom Perez, AG candidate in Maryland - Bill Halter, Lt. Gov. candidate in Arkansas. - Erskine Bowles, former US Senate candidate in NC - Robert Reich, former Gov. candidate in MA - Gov. Bill Richardson (NM) - Rep. Rahm Emanuel (IL) - Al Gore, former Presidential Candidate And one they forgot: - Samara Barend, former Congressional candidate, 29th NYRead more in the AP article.
Andrew Cuomo, AG and former Gov. candidate in New York
To prevent duplication, please do not alter the heading. Thanks.
Say what, Bill?
I think if you look closely you will find that being a former Clintonite does not translate into a winning strategy. Most of the candidates listed here already lost.
Whitehouse is a current AG in Rhode Island now running for Senate. Gillibrand is a first-time candidate who is not likely to win. I don't know about Charley King but I don't think he's likely to win his primary.
Bowles, Barend, and Reich are the only ones I know to have run and lost.
Thanks for the correction.
I used that article as a reference for the post, but not for the post itself. That's the reason the titles were different.
