Republican Swamp Draining

If you've read our posts you probably have noted that we haven't been exactly enamored with the possibility of John Ensign (R-NV) seeking re-election. He's a slime ball and probably a crook and the Republicans should hold their candidates and particularly their elected officials to a higher standard. So, it comes as no surprise that we're delighted this guy has announced that he won't seek re-election.

With that said, according to Stu Rothenberg, things look pretty safe for Republicans to keep the seat in Nevada:

"Sen. John Ensign’s (R) retirement announcement isn’t that surprising and doesn’t change our initial bottom line in Nevada since we didn’t expect him to make it out of a primary if he sought reelection.

With Cong. Dean Heller (R) as a likely candidate, Republicans are well-positioned to hold the open Senate seat. Of course it’s still very early in the race and it’s unclear who Democrats will nominate, but the race remains Lean Republican for now."
