Description

The prospects of a Kennedy-Cuomo clash ended when Robert F. Kennedy Jr. said this week that he would not run against Andrew M. Cuomo for state attorney general. But now New Yorkers face the possibility of another clash of political families, this one pitting Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton against Edward F. Cox, a son-in-law of President Richard M. Nixon. Mr. Cox, who married Tricia Nixon in the Rose Garden when her father was president, has told friends and Republican Party insiders that he is considering running against Mrs. Clinton in 2006, they said. Mr. Cox, 58, was busy making funeral arrangements for his mother, Anne, who died on Tuesday, and he referred questions to a friend who is his adviser. The friend, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said Mr. Cox is out there "testing the waters." The state Republican Party chairman, Stephen Minarik, said this week in an interview that his first choice would be to have former Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani run against Mrs. Clinton. But with Mr. Giuliani showing no interest in the race, other names have begun to circulate, among them Mr. Cox's.
