‘Meet the Press’ Profiles Three Major Comeback Attempts

buddyOn this Sunday’s edition of “Meet the Press” a segment aired that featured three former officials who are looking for a return to public office. Two of them are back on the campaign trail after finishing prison sentences.

Profiled in the piece are former U.S. Senator Larry Pressler, former Louisiana Governor Edwin Edwards, and former Providence mayor Buddy Cianci. Cianci and Edwards both did prison time after leaving office and all three men have been out of the spotlight for at least a decade. Edwards is running for a seat in the U.S. House, an office he last served in more than 40 years ago. That’s was before his 16 years as governor of the Pelican State.

All three men seem well positioned to potentially win their respective races.
