From Fox News:GOP Encouraged to Pick Up Senate Seat as Beau Biden Decides Not to Follow Dad
"Clearly, Beau Biden's decision not to run for the United States Senate represents a major recruiting setback for national Democrats, who have been counting on his candidacy to keep the vice president's former seat in Democrat control," Reed said. "As we saw in Massachusetts last week, voters clearly stated that these seats belong to the people - not to either political party or dynasty."
Democrats on Tuesday saw the seat formerly held by the late Sen. Ted Kennedy in Massachusetts fall to Republican Scott Brown. The win raised questions about Democrats' ability to hold onto seats once thought to be reliable for their party.
This is not good for the Democrats. It makes it look as if they see defeat in their future when their more promising candidates give up on what would have been easy wins.
I was looking forward to a Beau Biden race. What little I had heard about him made it sound like he was one of the very few Democrats that wasn't a stark raving loon.
