Harold Ford Jr Career, What is his profession?
When Harold Sr. opted not to run for re-election to a 12th term in Congress in 1996, Harold Jr. entered the campaign and quickly became the favorite in the Democratic primary, which was largely viewed as the true contest in the highly Democratic, black-majority 9th district. Ford planned his final semester of law school so that he would not have classes on Mondays or Fridays, allowing him to return home to Memphis for an extended weekend each week to continue his campaign.
He comfortably won the Democratic primary and was elected in November, as expected. He was one of the youngest members of Congress in US history and the youngest in the 105th and 106th Congresses when he took office at the age of 26. Harold was re-elected four times with no significant Republican opposition, receiving an average of 80% of the vote.
In 2000, Ford delivered the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention in support of then-Vice President Al Gore’s bid for the Democratic presidential nomination. Ford voted in support of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act on November 4, 1999. This act overturned part of the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933, which had been created to restrict any single institution from working as an investment bank, a commercial bank, or an insurance business at the same time.
New York City Public Advocate Bill de Blasio
On February 5, 2010, Gillibrand held a press conference in which she questioned whether Ford, as a Merrill Lynch executive, earned taxpayer-funded bonuses from Bank of America as a result of the federal bailout. New York City Public Advocate Bill de Blasio also endorsed her candidacy.
On February 12, it was reported that Ford’s contract with NBC had been terminated because of his probable campaign and that he had taken an unpaid leave of absence from Merrill Lynch for the same reason. Ford declared in an op-ed piece published by The New York Times on March 1 that he will not run against Gillibrand.
