Zimmer throwing hat into ring for Senate race?

According to the Politicker, former Rep. Dick Zimmer may be in the U.S. Senate race for the Republican Party. I have interviewed Mr. Zimmer a few times, and as a congressman there are not many people who have represented this state with the class and good sense he has shown through the years.

Mr. Zimmer is a dedicated campaigner, a reasonable person and a very intelligent man, who was a guiding force in creating Megan's Law (after the tragic death of Megan Kanka). Certainly, he is the best name the GOP has come up with so far to contend against veteran U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg in November. If Mr. Zimmer is in the race, it may well be one to watch.
