No Party Switch for Delaware GOP Rep. Castle if He Runs for Senate

If Delaware Republican Rep. Michael N. Castle runs for anything in 2010, it will be as a Republican.

Seems like a few
wondered if Castle, who is a dominant force in Delaware elections even as his state has trended Democratic, might be open to switching parties after he said in a speech Monday that “they’ve asked me to run for the Senate as a Republican. I don’t know if I’m going to do that.”

Asked about his comments on Wednesday, following a Capitol Hill news conference at which he promoted a bill to enact bipartisan commissions to redraw congressional district lines, Castle said he has no plans to switch parties and that he might have been a bit “inarticulate” in his Monday speech.
