Progressive Woman Considering Run for Snowe’s Senate Seat

Chellie Pingree is thinking about running for Olympia Snowe’s open seat in the Senate. She’s currently representing Maine in the House.

I haven’t heard of her before today, but I like what I see so far.

We need more progressive women in the Senate. We need more women, period, in the Senate. Currently, there are only seventeen women in the Senate. Out of a hundred seats? That’s ridiculous.

She has until March 15th to submit the signatures she needs to get on the ballot, about six weeks from today. I’m sure she’ll make her decision soon.

Here’s hoping.
