Harold Ford Back On MSNBC (VIDEO)

Now that Harold Ford is no longer considering a run for Senate from New York, he's back on MSNBC.

Ford's contract with the network — where he was a paid political analyst — had been suspended while he mulled a primary campaign against Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand.

Ford appeared Tuesday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" to discuss his decision not to challenge Gillibrand.

"It is very good to have you back among friends, Harold," Mika Brzezinski told him.

"Absolutely, glad to be home," he said.

Politico's Michael Calderone reports that an MSNBC spokesman said everything is "back to normal" [Calderone's phrasing, not MSNBC's] in terms of his contract, though he was identified in his chyron as "Chairman, Democratic Leadership Council" and not a contributor to the network.
