The response to “Harold, call me” that never was

For all you political junkies out there –

In his soon-to-be-released memoir, More Davids than Goliaths, former Memphis congressman Harold Ford Jr. writes that he drew up a plan to answer the infamous “Harold, Call Me” ad run against him during his unsuccessful 2006 Senate run against Bob Corker.

As Bill Dries writes in Tuesday’s Daily News, Ford considered coming back with a TV ad of his own starring Gov. Phil Bredesen and former Gov. Ned McWherter, with the two governors giving Ford their stamp of approval.

Bredesen agreed to do the ad. McWherter didn’t.
