David Walker eyes open CT Senate seat

David Walker, the former U.S. comptroller general and head of the Government Accountability Office, said on MSNBC today that he's considering a bid for Joe Lieberman's (I-D) open Senate seat.

"People have been asking me to run for office for many years, and I'm thinking about it," Walker told Chuck Todd on MSNBC's "Daily Rundown."

"The fact of the matter is that decisions are made or failed to be made by our elected officials in the next five years are largely going to determine if our future is better than our past."

"I don't feel compelled to run but I'm considering it," added Walker, who also previously served as president and CEO of the Peter G. Peterson Foundation.

When Todd followed up if it's the Senate seat in Connecticut he's considering, Walker replied, "I wouldn't be interested in anything other than the senate, and I live in Connecticut."
