Biden to Delaware for Coons
The Hill ^ | September 16, 2010 | Shane D'Aprile

Posted on 09/16/2010 12:28:50 PM PDT by maggief

Vice President Joe Biden will head to Delaware sometime next week to campaign for the Democrat hoping to fill his former Senate seat.

According to CNN, Biden will stump on behalf of New Castle County Executive Chris Coons, who faces Tea Party-backed Christine O'Donnell in November.

It comes as no surprise that Biden will campaign for Coons, and Republican strategists say they expect to see him in the state more than once ahead of November. But the fact that Biden is being deployed so quickly suggests Democrats are anxious to cut off any momentum that may be building for O'Donnell, who has gotten significant national attention since her primary victory Tuesday.

Question.

Castle aged 71 was expected to serve out the term and retire in 4 years at what time Beau Biden would run and win the seat and have it for 30 years like dear old dad.

If Coons wins, the Biden family loses its family heirloom, err Senate seat.

HR

Biden defeated O'Donnell quite handily in 2008. I don't know what kind of influence he'd have but I don't see it hurting Coons.

JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR  257,539  64.7 % 
  
CHRISTINE O'DONNELL 140,595  35.3 %

Its a very different political scene now, Biden is long associated with Obama, Obama is bad news, Christine was an unknown with very little money, the Tea Party did not exist, and there is a tidal wave of anger now against insiders and statists, and if you are an insider statist like Biden, its a double whammy.

In this light, Biden may very well hurt Coons, Obama definitely would.

What are the odds Biden goes the entire time without saying the name “Barack Obama” one time?

If Biden goes in there and says anything that would indicate they want Coons elected to help President Obama get legislation through the senate, Coons is doomed.
