Westchester DA Pirro to challenge Clinton's Senate re-election bid
Westchester District Attorney Jeanine Pirro has decided to seek the Republican nomination to challenge Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton in New York's 2006 Senate race.
Pirro told The Associated Press the former first lady is more interested in running for president than being senator.
The 53-year-old announced May 23 she would not seek a fourth term as district attorney, but would run for statewide office in 2006. She would not say whether that would be U.S. Senate, governor if Republican Gov. Pataki did not seek a fourth term, or state attorney general, an office being vacated by Democrat Eliot Spitzer, who is running for governor.
