Former State Sen. Antoine M. Thompson said today he has not looked at new boundaries of Senate districts released last week by a legislative reapportionment commission.
"I haven't given any thought to it," he said when asked if he is contemplating another shot at Albany.
Thompson said he is concentrating on his real estate and publishing businesses and dismissed any thought that he may be contemplating a return to politics. But several sources say the former senator has been busy in recent days discussing a candidacy in the district now represented by Sen. Timothy M. Kennedy, D-Buffalo.
He would not comment on the reports of those sources, who say Thompson has made no commitments. All those involved in the process point out the newest legislative lines may undergo many changes in the face of an expected gubernatorial veto and possible court scrutiny.
