Biden Wins Senate Race in Delaware
By Paul Kane
Sen. Joseph Biden (D-Del.) has been declared the winner of a seventh Senate term that he hopes to never serve.
In a little noticed race, the Democratic vice-presidential nominee was also on the ballot in the First State as U.S. senator. Biden, who presumably voted for himself twice today, was declared the winner over Republican Christine O'Donnell as soon as the polls closed.
If the Obama-Biden ticket wins the White House, Biden is likely to resign his Senate seat and allow a Democratic governor to name his successor, setting up a special election in 2010 for the remainder of his term. Potential successors include his son, state Attorney General Joseph R. "Beau" Biden III, who is on a tour of duty in Iraq with the state's Army National Guard.
