Potential Democratic stand-in Richard Blumenthal, Connecticut’s popular attorney general, said Thursday that he would consider running for the seat — but only if Dodd decides on his own to step aside.
“If Sen. Dodd really changes his mind and there is an opportunity, I would very definitely,” Blumenthal said. “I would be interested because [serving in the U.S. Senate] has been a long-term, in fact, lifetime, public service goal … but for right now, I’m focused on being the best possible attorney general I can be.”
