Beau Biden Drops Out of Delaware Senate Race

Joe declined to appoint Beau to the Delaware Senate seat he vacated after assuming the Vice Presidency because Beau was serving in Iraq. That set Beau up to be something like  "catnip" for voters in 2010, according to Gawker.

But things started to heat up. Scott Brown got elected. U.S. Rep. Mike Castle (R-Del.) is looking really good as a potential Senator — poised to push Delaware further into Republican territory, after Democrats have dominated the First State for over a decade.

Beau thinks the Attorney General's seat is more comfortable. So he's not running for Senator.
