More Hints That Domenici and Allard Might Retire and Other News

Some fun news for you, including Senator Pete Domenici apparently attending a sleepover party:

  • New Mexico: Was Republican Senator Pete Domenici wandering the halls of the Senate in pajamas? Kos, Jonathan Singer at MyDD, and Taegan Goddard at Political Wire seem to think so.

  • Colorado: Goddard offers his thoughts on a Roll Call piece on incumbent Republican Wayne Allard's retirement likelihood. The Rocky Mountain News offers insight into former Rep. Beauprez's potential Senate run. And ABC News' The Note seems to offer that Allard is likely to retire:

    In a story that has possible implications for whether Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO) will seek the White House in 2008, Roll Call's David Drucker reports that "speculation is mounting" that Sen. Wayne Allard (R-CO) will retire in 2008. If Allard's seat opens up, Tancredo has signaled that he could run for that seat instead of making a presidential bid.
  • Michigan: offers this look at Democratic incumbent Senator Carl Levin's potential 2008 opponents:

    A number of Republicans have been mentioned as possible contenders for the seat, including U.S. Reps. Candice Miller of Harrison Township and Mike Rogers of Brighton and Jane Abraham, the co-chair of the state Republican Party and the wife of former U.S. Sen. Spencer Abraham of Michigan.
  • New Hampshire: The Hill takes a look at NH-Dems optimism at deposing incumbent Republican Senator John Sununu.

  • Kansas: Does Democratic Governor Kathleen Sebelius becoming Chair of the Democratic Governors Assocation make it less likely or more likely that she might run for Senate?

  • Oklahoma: Incumbent radical Republican Jim Inhofe has another opportunity to look like an out-of-touch-with-reality lunatic by denying global climate change.

  • The Senate GOP is creating a bogus spin chamber hoping to reclaim the dialogue on issues that they have clearly lost.
