At 91, perennial candidate Harold Stassen is ready to run again.
He has sent notice that he intends to file for Minnesota governor this summer. "I would focus on the combination of integrity and intelligence in public service," Stassen said.Stassen, a former three-term governor of Minnesota, sought the Republican Party nomination for the White House 10 times, first in 1948 and most recently in 1992, when he won one Minnesota delegate.
His most recent shot at office came in 1996, when he offered to be Bob Dole's running mate. He said he wanted to show that Dole, then 72, was "young enough to be a successful president."
