Mort Zuckerman to Run For U.S. Senate?

Mort Zuckerman, the billionaire owner of real estate firm Boston Properties, is reportedly considering a run for U.S. Senate to replace Kirsten Gillibrand.  The New York Times’ description of Michael Bloomberg perfectly articulated my opinion of Zuckerman…”a self-financed nonpolitician whose independence from special interest groups would let him apply strong medicine to the city’s fiscal ills, and damn the political consequences.”
