Dems recruiting former Giant Carson for House bid
Democrats recruiting Hall of Famer Harry Carson, former Giants linebacker, for House run in NJ
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' House Democrats are recruiting Hall of Fame football player Harry Carson to run for a House seat from New Jersey.

A congressional source says the former New York Giants linebacker would challenge five-term Republican Rep. Scott Garrett in a northern New Jersey district. The official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss private conversations.

The 58-year-old Carson says he's interested, but wouldn't immediately say any more. Carson is in Hawaii for a family vacation and said by telephone that he might be able to say more in the next week or two.

He says the trip gives him a chance to think about his future and whether he enters politics.

Since retiring in 1988, Carson has worked as a broadcaster, written two books and focused on concussions in sports.
