Three Senators Consider State House Bids

"In a sign of growing Democratic powerlessness and despair in Washington after Tuesday's elections," Sen. Christopher Dodd (D-CT) "is considering running for governor of Connecticut in 2006," the New York Times reports.

"Should Mr. Dodd choose to make a run for governor, he would be among three Democratic senators from the New York region giving thought to such a leap, particularly in the wake of Tuesday's elections, when Republicans expanded their majority in the Senate with a net gain of four seats."

The other two, Sen. Jon Corzine (D-NJ) and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D_NY), "are said to be dispirited over their continued minority status -- as well as the reality that their party does not appear to have a shot at winning the majority any time soon."
