O’Donnell Takes Lead in Delaware: Tea Party Collecting Another Scalp?

By: Monday September 13, 2010 7:07 am

There’s been precious little polling of the Republican primary in Delaware, because longtime Rep. Mike Castle was thought to have no problem in his race against perennial candidate Christine O’Donnell. Castle has represented Delaware as Governor and Congressman for 30 years, and given that he represents the best (maybe only) chance for Delaware to pick [...]

Chris Coons Supports Filibuster Reform

By: Friday August 13, 2010 7:25 am

After hearing about Mike Castle’s openness to changes in the Senate rules, I wondered what his Democratic opponent in the Delaware Senate would have to say about the issue, which is fundamental to governance if you believe that Democrats will lose seats and have a smaller majority next year. Chris Coons is the New Castle [...]

The exemptions designed to stave off the NRA from opposition are distasteful. But looking at the total bill, those exemptions about donor disclosure, while regrettable, are not [...]

No Beau In Delaware – Senate Seat Becomes Likely GOP Pickup

Republican Mike Castle has won enough statewide races in Delaware that the only competition in November who would have given him a legitimate fight was Beau Biden, the son of the Vice President and the state’s Attorney General. But he’s not running, opting instead for Attorney General. The younger Biden told supporters in an e-mail [...]

DE-Sen: Beau Biden Takes Lead Over Mike Castle – Could Castle’s Health Care No Vote Be The Reason?

By: Monday November 16, 2009 1:14 pm

I question the importance of election polls a year out, especially when one of the candidates in it hasn’t even announced that he’s running.
