Jer-ry! Jer-ry! Jer-ry!Yes that's right, Jerry "My fiancee is in love with another man" Springer has officially filed papers on Monday to run for the U.S. Senate from Ohio.
Springer, the former mayor of Cincinnati, will make a final decision on whether to run by the end of the month. State Sen. Eric Fingerhut has already announced his candidacy for the Democratic nomination and the right to challenge first-term Sen. George Voinovich, R-Ohio, who served as governor of Ohio from 1991-99.Although he still has time to make a final decision, Myself is betting he goes for it. Now, to be sure there will be lots of jokes to go around, David Letterman made one last night, something about teenage prostitutes if I remember, but you know what? I'd vote for the guy, if only for the jokes.
Voinovich, who won in 1998 with 57 percent of the vote, is considered a formidable candidate.
