Brother of Pilot of Flight 11 to Run for Senate

John Ogonowski may have been one of the very first to die in the terrorist attacks on 9-11. His brother Jim is running for the Senate as a Republican against John Kerry in Massachusetts.

The official policy of this blog is to be non-partisan. I will note that Ogonowski seems very unlikely to dethrone John Kerry in Massachusetts in a presidential election year. Massachusetts typically goes 60% for the Democrat in the presidential sweepstakes, and that means that fully 1/6 of those people would have to cross over and vote against Kerry after casting their ballots for Barack or Hillary.

Call me crazy, but I doubt Jon Gold is going to be rooting for this 9-11 family member.
