Ferraro Contemplates New York Senate Run

Geraldine Ferraro, former Democratic Congresswoman and the first female Vice-Presidential nominee, has mailed a letter to potential supporters asking them to wait until 1998 to back a Senate candidate. Ferraro will decide in 1998 whether or not to run for New York's Senate seat; if nominated, she would run against current Senator Alfonso D'Amato. In the letter she wrote, "I will personally get back to you, either to tell you I love you for waiting but I've decided to put an end to my public service career, or I love you and I need you to help me send Al D'Amato back to Island Park."
