Hey Mom! Ever consider running for the Senate?
Veteran Sen. Pete Domenici (R-N.M.) is expected to announce tomorrow that he will retire from the Senate in 2008, according to several informed sources, a decision that further complicates an already difficult playing field for Republicans next November. [SNIP]Actually, another member of our family--a Democrat--would be more likely to do so.
Domenici's Senate office did not return a call this afternoon, but sources close to the senator say he will fly home to New Mexico tomorrow to make the announcement that he is retiring.
It seems that quite a few Republican senators and representatives intend to hang it up next year.

UPDATE: Senator Domenici, 75, is retiring because he has a form of dementia--the affliction formerly known as senility. My mom mentioned that he had been looking frail lately.
