Writes the Hartford Courant political blog:

Broker Peter Schiff is scheduled to appear on the “The Daily Show” Tuesday night and supporters are bracing for a major announcement.

Schiff, a broker and TV pundit from Darien, has been contemplating a run for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Democrat Chris Dodd. There’s no indication he’ll announce during his “Daily Show” appearance, but supporters are hopeful.

“I can’t speak officially on behalf of his campaign but yeah, his supporters are expecting and bracing for a major announcement,” said Chad Peace of San Diego, part of a legion of Schiff fans who are active on the grassroots website, Also in the works, said Peace, is another “money bomb,” a one-day drive for mass donations through the Internet.
