Norris faces little chance

SENATOR David Norris is said to be considering re-entering the Presidential race. He withdrew in August after a controversy over a letter he wrote to Israeli authorities seeking clemency for his former partner.

Now Fianna Fail looks extremely unlikely to provide the signatures needed to get him on the ballot.

Without their backing, he effectively has no chance of getting in the race. Why bother at this stage?
