Krystal Ball on U.S. Senate: “I have no current plan to run for this office.”


    Yesterday, after seeing Krystal Ball’s former campaign manager tweet that “chances are at least 50/50” of her running for Jim Webb’s U.S. Senate seat, I emailed her to ask if that was correct. Here’s Krystal Ball’s response:

    I’m flattered to even be mentioned in such an accomplished group. Right now I’m working on increasing the number of young women in politics and improving the discourse between right and left. You can follow my work in this area at I have no current plan to run for this office. Congratulations to Senator Webb on his incredible service in the US Senate.  His integrity and advocacy for veterans and criminal justice reform is truly remarkable. The Commonwealth and the country are better for his service.

    So, has anyone else heard of any other possible Democratic women candidates for Jim Webb’s Senate seat in 2012?
