Nodine gets a shout out on MSNBC

Steve Nodine’s potential candidacy for U.S. House got some media time from MSNBC’s Chris Matthews today.

“What’s one of the worst possible places to launch and carry out a congressional campaign?” Matthews asked on Hardball. “Well, ask Stephen Nodine… who’s considering a run for the United States Congress. He happens to be serving out right now a two-year prison sentence on charges of perjury and harassment.”

Matthews said Nodine is undeterred by the difficulty of launching a campaign while spending weekends in jail.

“That’s not stopping him,” Matthews quipped. “Since he wouldn’t be able to hold any in-person campaign events, Nodine says he would focus on social media.”
