Castle Rumored to Defect Once Elected
For over a year the newspapers in Delaware have suggested Castle may defect once he was re-elected. After his loss in the Republican primary he received calls from Biden and Obama fueling the suspicion of his defection and of a deal to hand off his senate office to Biden’s son upon retirement.
This is a special election . The elected one will hold office immediately and will be able to vote in the Senate in Nov. and Dec. Castle, one of the most liberal senators in the senate was far from being a moderate. If he had won, he could have voted with the Democrats on any legislation proposed in the Nov-Dec. lame duck session.
