A big part of what the chairman does is call time, just like candidates do, when you ask others to give, and I just think that if you're going to do that kind of asking that you'd better be the first one to step up.
Elected officials who win trust, like Strom Thurmond and Fritz Hollings, get re-elected.
I don't think there's any question about it, this is a Karl Rove special. They believe the district has become more Republican, and they see an opportunity to knock John off. So this time, they're going to pull out all the stops.

I respect Michael's decision. He found out that, for him, the timing wasn't good and, honestly, I'm excited about some of the (other) people who have expressed an interest.
Governor Sanford would rather blame the Department of Labor for passing out bad numbers than work to create jobs in South Carolina.
Evan Bayh is a true leader in the United States Senate. He's one of the Democratic Party's rising stars and has a very exciting future ahead. We are thrilled to welcome him to South Carolina and look forward to hearing his vision for America.
