Albany - A long-time liberal Albany attorney is running for U.S. Senate. James Finkelstein qualified Wednesday, adding his name to a growing list of candidates looking to succeed retiring U.S. Senator Zell Miller.
Finkelstein says the War in Iraq drove him to run. His son, Ben, recently came home from Iraq where his best friend and fellow marine was killed. Finkelstein says it's time to get our troops out of harm's way.
"We had two goals that we went in with. One was to eliminate weapons of mass destruction, and we found that there are none. The other was to remove Saddam Hussien from power, we've done that and he's captured. He's awaiting trial. We've accomplished our goals. It doesn't make sense to stay there and make up new goals as we go along," said Finkelstien.
Over the last two decades, Finkelstein has run for district attorney, school board, and state court judge. But, he never won. Now in the U.S. Senate race, he's running against Democrats Jim Boyd, Denise Majette, Mary Squires; Republicans Herman Cain, Johnny Isakson, and Mac Collins; and Independent Ray Beckworth.
