Chris Murphy ’96, Democratic congressman from Connecticut, is one of the Ephs most likely to be President someday. The natural next step in his political career is as Senator or Governor. All his many fans at EphBlog were disappointed when it appeared he had no chance (and, therefore, no reason to run) for the open Senate seat because Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal had a lock on the Democratic nomination. But, good news! Blumenthal lied about serving in Vietnam.

If Nate Silver says that Blumenthal must go, then Chris has a duty to listen. Run, Chris, run!
