Richard Blumenthal is concluding two decades as Attorney General and launching a bid to replace Chris Dodd as Connecticut's U.S. Senator.
What about the compatibility of doing both of those things at once? Attorney General is kind of an odd job. The modern AG tends to get involved is a lot of causes, but technically speaking, the position has no real policy component.

Senators are all about what they believe. AGs -- at least in theory -- are all about performance.
