Richter for Congress

How awesome is this:

Although the typical Yalie is not old enough to make a bid for Congress even after Commencement, former professional hockey star and Stanley Cup winner Mike Richter ’08 could be poised to join the Eli contingent on Capitol Hill next year.Richter is a 40-year-old Ethics, Politics and Economics major who was admitted to Yale through the Eli Whitney special students program. A Democrat, he is considering a run against Chris Shays, a Republican who represents Fairfield County, the state’s Fourth Congressional District.
I love that Richter is going to be graduating the same year I will.Update: In case you have any doubt about voting for Richter, watch this. (Hat-tip: Ethan Stan...)
