Doherty ups the Senate run chatter…

…with on-the-record comments to the Scranton Times-Tribune.

“I got into public service to make my community better,” he tells them. “When someone of the stature of Senator Mellow retires, you have to ask what would be the best role for Northeast Pennsylvania.”

“I am considering it,” he says, but doesn’t set a timetable for a final decision.

The Democrat didn’t enter his name into the State Committee’s endorsement election last weekend, and his fundraising has lagged behind other candidates in the four (five?)-man race.
