Hattip to Allahpundit of Hot Air. Perhaps joining a list of defeated Rinos who simply want to hang on to power at all costs, Charlie Crist in Florida and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Mike Castle is considering a write-in campaign in the Senate race in Delaware.
“I don’t want to necessarily interfere with Republican chances,” said Castle, although he added, “I’ve had a lot of people approach me about it.”…
Asked directly whether he was considering a bid, Castle said: “I’ve given it some thought. I probably won’t do it…. I’m not exactly approaching this with bated breath.” Castle spokeswoman Kate Dickens said the congressman has had conversations about a write-in effort but that he likely won’t pull the trigger.
“We are getting a lot of mail and calls on it,” Dickens told POLITICO. But she said the likelihood of Castle mounting a campaign was still, “under 5 percent.”
Run Mike Run! You and Coons, Harry Reid’s pet, would be fighting over the same pool of voters, and that would be greatly to the advantage of Ms. O’Donnell, and assist her in accurately portraying herself as the ultimate outsider and rebel fighting against status quo party hacks. In this year that is precisely what most voters are looking for. I trust that Mike Castles’ vanity and obvious desire for revenge will cause him to pick up his defeated hat and toss it back into the ring.
