    a Grimes candidacy. Though she does seem like she could be an interesting candidate. Maybe the same type of appeal as Shelli Yoder in Indiana. Though I'm sure with much more money do to the nature of the race.

    •  She seems like a horrendous choice (3+ / 0-)

      In 2003, French Henry struck and killed a mother of four in a 2003 car accident as the woman was crossing the street on a bicycle. She later went on to discuss the emotional toll the accident took on her, including an appearance on the Oprah Winfrey show. There were no charges laid.
      Her husband faced numerous controversies that could be used against French Henry if she decides to run.
      Steve Henry was accused of violating state campaign laws during his gubernatorial campaign and ultimately made an Alford plea, in which a defendant maintains their innocence but admits there's enough evidence to convict, and paid multiple fines.

    •  I think a lot of Dems (2+ / 0-)

      seem to think Alison Grimes will pass on the Senate race. I tend to agree. She has many options for 2015 though, SoS, AG, and LG.

        I really hope she makes the right decision, although the former state party chair is not a bad fallback.  And all this talk is like MT-Sen where some Dems are being talked up despite the fact that Schweitzer is likely to get in.  Some people get restless.
