James Taylor has seen fire and rain, but he likely hasn’t seen how intense a senatorial campaign can be.

A public radio official is trying to coax the easy listening singer to run for office – specifically the seat held for now by Sen. John Kerry.
Alan Chartock is president and CEO of WAMC/Northeast Public Radio, an Albany, N.Y.-based station that covers parts of Western Massachusetts. Chartock on Monday penned a blog post urging Taylor to run. Chartock argued that Taylor would have a better chance of beating likely Republican candidate Scott Brown than would Democrat Ed Markey, the dean of the Massachusetts congressional delegation.
