Breaking News: Jim Himes files to run against Shays, Liveblog today at 1:30 pm

I think Chris Shays has a problem on his hands.
An announcement fresh off the griddle, Greenwich DTC Chair Jim Himes has just announced that he's filed to run in 2008 against Chris Shays in the 4th CD.

What's more, he's agreed to come by My Left Nutmeg on his first day as a candidate to talk with Connecticut voters and activists to share his thoughts on the upcoming campaign, talk about his professional and public service experience, and answer questions about his goals as Connecticut's next Democratic Congressman!

Jim will be joining us from 1:30 to 2:30pm, and I'd like to encourage lurkers and first-time-visitors to register with the site to participate in the liveblog event: it's free, but it usually takes 15 minutes or so for your password to arrive, so you might want to sign up early to avoid disappointment.

Make sure to check out My Left Nutmeg and check out the preson who's going to hand Shays his pink slip.
