Report: Card Weighing Run For Kennedy's Seat

This article is more than 10 years old.

A top GOP figure says former Bush White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card is seriously considering running for the late Sen. Edward Kennedy's vacant Senate seat.

Veteran political strategist and Card friend Ron Kaufman said Wednesday that Card is being pushed by Republicans to look at the race and is weighing a candidacy. Kaufman said in an e-mailed statement that Card has not made up his mind.

Kaufman is a Republican National Committee member from Massachusetts. He says Card plans to speak Wednesday night to state GOP officials at a meeting in Newton, Mass.

Card has not responded to attempts for comment from The Associated Press.

Card served in the White House under Bush, as well as Bush's father, former President George H.W. Bush. Card is a native of Holbrook, Mass.
