Tiahrt-Glickman rematch?

Is Dan Glickman interested in running for Senate in 2010? "I suppose I'm genetically interested in it. I've always been interested in politics and public service," he told Politico. But Glickman, a former Democratic member of Congress from Wichita and current chairman of the Motion Picture Association of America, said one problem is that he's not a great fundraiser. "To run for Senate requires you to do nothing but raise huge quantities of money, and fundraising isn't interesting or attractive to me," he said. But the possibility of a rematch with Rep. Todd Tiahrt, R-Goddard _ who defeated Glickman in 1994 and is running for Senate _ is intriguing. "Well, I guess it would be a very interesting revenge match, but I like Todd," Glickman said.
