From the Associated Press:
quote:
A Dartmouth Medical School professor and former astronaut is considering a Democratic bid to unseat Republican Sen. John Sununu.

Dr. Jay Buckey said he is exploring how much support he could muster in what could be a crowded Democratic field...

Buckey, 50, of Hanover, said his campaign would focus on using technology and innovation to solve the nation's problems.

"We have tremendous strengths," he said. "We're just not using those adequately to address the problems facing the nation."

It appears he did indeed decide to do so on June 14: www.buckey08.com

His home page mentions the space program, and there are other references / images throughout his website.

Associated Press:
Buckey withdraws, clearing Dem field for Shaheen in Senate race
quote:
Former astronaut Jay Buckey is withdrawing from the Democratic U.S. Senate primary in New Hampshire, leaving former Governor Jeanne Shaheen as the lone Democrat to face Republican Senator John Sununu.

In an e-mailed statement early today, Buckey - a Dartmouth Medical School professor from Hanover - says he remains committed to his campaign goals but doesn't have the money to campaign full-time.

He wished Shaheen well.
