    why is Mike Castle (R) the at-large congressman?

    Delaware has a habit of electing someone, then keeping them there for 30 years.

    -5.50, -5.90, History has a way of repeating itself:

      which is why Carper's challenge of Sen. Bill Roth in 2000, and the fact that it was successful, was an eyebrow-raiser.

      The frogurt is also cursed. -8.25, -6.51

      •  Roth wasn't effective anymore (0+ / 0-)

        I believe he was ailing and started to show his age. Couple that to the fact he was challenged by a popular former Rep./sitting governor.

        In fact, I believe some GOPers tried to coax Roth in to retirement so that Rep. Castle could have run for the seat but he wouldn't have it... result: pickup for the good guys.

    •  Rep. Castle is highly regarded (0+ / 0-)

      Mike Castle (69) - a former Governor of Delaware - is a highly regarded and well liked moderate Republican. This congressional seat is probably his as long as he wants it. The moment he retires it'll switch to our side methinks.
