Burbank mulls run for U.S. Senate in 2010

Failed 5th District Green Party congressional candidate Harold Burbank of Canton is considering running for Chris Dodd's U.S. Senate seat in 2010, The Register Citizen reported this morning.
Burbank, a human rights attorney, criticized the Senate Banking Committee chairman for his role in the huge federal bailout of Wall Street this fall.
Running with virtually no budget and shut out of major party candidate debates in the 5th District race won by incumbent Congressman Chris Murphy, Burbank received 2,871 votes, or 1 percent of the vote on Nov. 4, to Murphy's 174,316 votes.
