KLAYMAN FOR SENATE?

Politics1 has the story:

Conservative legal activist Larry Klayman — the founder and chairman of Judicial Watch — announced Monday that he plans to enter the US Senate race next year in Florida. “I will be the conservative antidote for Hillary Clinton. I will be her worst nightmare,” said Klayman. Under his leadership, Judicial Watch uncovered such high profile anti-Clinton cases such as “Filegate” and “Chinagate”, plus brought lawsuits involving Gennifer Flowers and other Clinton opponents. Under the current administration, Klayman filed suit seeking the records of Vice President Cheney’s energy task force. As Judicial Watch explains, they bring the suits “because no one is above the law.” While the group is based in DC, Klayman is a Miami resident who has commuted back and forth for the past decade. Klayman is the seventh GOP candidate to enter the race for the seat currently held by Presidential candidate Bob Graham (D). While Graham is currently not seeking re-election, he has left open the option that he may re-enter the Senate race if his White House bid falters.

I’m sure Klayman will generate every bit the excitement that Janet Reno did.
