No, he’s not running for re-election. But he is staying in the Senate, which is almost as good:
I will continue to serve Idaho in the United States Senate, and there are several reasons for that. As I continued to work for Idaho over the past three weeks here in the Senate, I have seen that it is possible for me to work here effectively.
I’m not sure he’ll still be able to work effectively, but I think I speak for all Democrats in saying that he’s doing a great job of helping our candidates campaign effectively in 2008. Thanks, Larry.
