Tipper! Not!

Drudge today headlines a story from The Nashville Tennesseean that quotes "sources" who say that Tipper Gore is mulling a bid for the Democratic Senate nomination in Tennessee. Senator Fred Thompson, the popular (60% in the 1994 special, 61% in 1996) incumbent, recently announced that he would not seek re-election this year, thus creating an "open seat" election.

The gang at ABC News emailed this morning to say that they would largely knock down the Tennesseean's story. You can access their report at this address. As I've written before, the ABC News Political Note is a good site to bookmark if you're into political news.
