All the signs are pointing to a Castle Senate run and I appears that the fix is in. Just check out the Newark Post coverage of the AMTRACK stimulus event:
Amtrak Bear shops celebrate first car reconstruction with stimulus funds

The Amtrak Bear Car Shops took time out to celebrate the completion of the first passenger car to be rebuilt with stimulus funds.
Sen. Thomas Carper, Gov. Jack Markell and U.S. Rep. Mike Castle joined Amtrak CEO Joseph Boardman and employees at the sprawling complex off Route 40 to tour the rebuilt car that was funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
Has the word gone out from Tom Carper’s office that Mike Castle is going to be the next Senator? If the fix already in?
How easy would it have been for the Newark Post to report that actual fact that Mike Castle voted against Delaware getting the stimulus money that he was taking credit for?
Here is the extent of the News Journal’s reporting on the fact that Castle is posing as a supporter of President Obama’s Economic Recovery plan:
Workers gather en masse Monday to listen to Sen. Tom Carper, Gov. Jack Markell, Rep. Mike Castle, and some of their own bosses speak about the $58.5 million project at the Amtrak Bear Maintenance Facility.
That was a photo caption. There was this cracker-jack reporting as well…
Sen. Tom Carper, D-Del., and Rep. Mike Castle, R-Del., who ride Amtrak regularly, agreed.
“I was here when a bunch of us weren’t sure Amtrak would even have a future,” Carper said.
He said when people start traveling on the new cars, they are going to find that the doors open when they are supposed to, the air works, and the bathrooms aren’t overflowing.
Hey News Journal….why bother even putting out a paper?
Has even Allan Loudell gotten the memo that Mike Castle’s vote on American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is off limits?
