THE WHITE HOUSE
Office of the First Lady
STATEMENT BY FIRST LADY HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON
"I am deeply gratified by the large number of people who have encouraged me to consider running for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan. Until now, I have not been able to do so, but I will give careful thought to a potential candidacy in order to reach a decision later this year. In the meantime, I intend to continue to focus my attention on the issues central to the President's agenda and on which we have worked together for many years."
