    nor did Cuomo, and given who his father is I don't think he should count anyway.

    Looking at people who were first elected to something, then served in a cabinet, then tried to win election again, I'm coming up with Mike Johanns who won and Tommy Thompson who lost, but both were elected statewide before. Is there anyone who was elected to a lower office, then served as a cabinet secretary, then won statewide office? I can't think of anyone off the top of my head.

      Johanns was elected senator from a a state that is very much favorable to his party. That's something that's missing from this discussion. Someone like Foxx would be running in a state that is, all things considered, mildly unfavorable to his party.
