Alec Baldwin to Run for Political Office?

Actor and political activist Alec Baldwin has reacted to rumors that he will be running against Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman in the 2012 election, according to a report.

Baldwin's spokesperson tells the Associated Press that the "30 Rock" leading man has no plans to move to Connecticut or run against Lieberman. He tells the AP that Baldwin would like to see the independent senator remain in office because there are so few moderate Republicans in Congress. Lieberman, who caucuses with the Democrats in the Senate, was a longtime Democrat but switched his political affiliation to independent in 2006.

This statement differs from what Baldwin told Playboy magazine. "I have sometimes thought I could move to New Jersey or Connecticut and run," the actor told the publication. "I’d love to run against Joe Lieberman. I have no use for him."
