    •  Racicot hasn't been elected (5+ / 0-)

      to anything since 1996, when his opponent died a month before the election and Democrats couldn't get a replacement name on the ballot. He's been out of the loop longer than Tommy Thompson had. Though Racicot could still possibly run for something, despite being in his early sixties.
