Veteran Rep. Jose Serrano said Wednesday that he is considering a 2010 primary run against Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, even as other possible contenders have dropped out in recent days.

“If Rahm Emanuel is making calls, he has a few more to make,” Serrano said of the White House chief of staff.

Rep. Steve Israel, D-N.Y., announced Friday that he would not run for the seat after President Obama lobbied him to stay out.
