I suspect that number you cited probably does not figure in the strain of an 85 heard old running for the US Senate in the first place. I would be surprised to see him make it to January 2019 if he really tries.

How old was Strom when he had to be wheeled in, for his last Senate appearance?

At least we know he won’t become a long-term, career politicians. :-)

I find it hard to believe that out of 6 million plus people there isn’t anybody under 80 who would make a good Senator there.

There are moderately good candidates, but none that are as morally strong as Joe.

An 85 year old running to be a freshman Senator for a 6 year term? That does not make practical sense strategically, nor personally for him. His age would be an automatic -5% in his vote ceiling and in what could be a very close race and that is not something we need.

His age probably lowers his vote ceiling to make it impossible for him to win in a close election. Moreover, your flippant comment that he could just be “replaced” doesn’t make sense as you can’t guarantee a Republican governor would be in place when and if that event were to occur. Things like the Supreme Court are too important to play games with.

Out of state money will pick Arizona's senator just like it did with McCain and whats-his-name.

I don’t know you, but if you are solid, true, card carrying conservative then yes, she is.
