Okay. Mike Castle is our Next Senator. It has been decided on high.

Filed in Delaware by on July 14, 2009

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
Published: Monday, July 13, 2009 5:22 PM CDT
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?

  1. While it is hard to not imagine that Castle will go forward as DEGOP’s best hope for Congress –now that he abdicated a return to the House in a gentlemen’s agreement with John Carney–, perhaps he is ready to give up the ghost.

    Mebbe he is emptying his trinket drawer and voting his conscience and keeping up the public exposure so he can repair his stand as a moderate for legacy purposes.

    I think the ‘Delaware Way’ will show whether he is a serious candidate for the Senate according to who is put up for Senate by the High DEMs (Carper et al). If Beau decides to run for the Senate, Castle won’t. If anyone else is put up (besides the WONDERFUL Senator Kaufman) by the DEMs, then Castle will go for it and likely win.

    I don’t think he has a shot against either Kaufman or Biden. Are Carper and company playing footsie with the DEGOP and Castle? That’s what I want to know. It would hardly be the first time.

    I agree with this 100% I think the ‘Delaware Way’ will show whether he is a serious candidate for the Senate according to who is put up for Senate by the High DEMs (Carper et al).

    I think in the smoke-free back room – the deal is being crafted and our next Senator (Mike Castle, Beau Biden or Ted Kaufman (praying to a deaf God)) will be presented to the voters as a fait accomplis.

    Jason: To paraphrase Al Franken, “Why not thee?”

    JM –

    If I had John Corzine money I’d run to just rip a hunk of meat out of Castle’s leg.

  5. Dana says:

    C’mon, Jason, it shouldn’t take Governor Corzine’s money to run in Delaware.

  6. John Manifold says:

    Not to worry. Looks like Jason was right all along. Castle filed his report today, showing no Senate-level activity.

    Total second-quarter receipts: $124,000, only $14,000 of which was donated by individuals. The rest came from PAC’s, who routinely throw unsolicited envelopes through the transom.
