CNN contributor Bakari Sellers eyes congressional bid

CNN political commentator Bakari Sellers is eyeing a congressional bid, saying he will run when his state’s sole Democratic-held congressional seat opens up.

According to the State, he said, “When that opportunity presents itself, when it arises, it’s fair to say I will be raring and ready to go to get the voters of the 6th District to send me to Congress,” referring to Representative Clyburn, who has held the seat for a quarter of a century.

“It’s been a dream of mine for a very long time.”

In addition to being a CNN commentator and a practicing attorney, Sellers is a former South Carolina state rep.
