Fact of the Day: Liberal Ken Jennings

While he's better known for his legendary run on the game-show Jeopardy!, Ken Jennings is also a member of the Democratic Party. Senators Chuck Schumer and Harry Reid had urged Jennings to run for a Senate seat representing Utah in 2004. Jennings declined to run, and the seat was re-won by Senator Bob Bennett.

  3. I wish he would run - but Utah is such a heavily conservative state that he would have quite the uphill battle.

    1. he didn't actually run, when big names reveal their political views both parties try very hard to get them to run.

      Like old Arnold Schwarzenegger, he ran as a Republican governor in a Democratic state, and didn't come close to losing.
