United States Senate election in Alabama, 2010

From dKosopedia

Richard Shelby, a former Democrat who switched parties in 1994 when Republicans took control of both the House and Senate, may retire. He will be 76 in 2010. Although Alabama is a solidly Republican state in presidential elections, Democrats control majorities in the Alabama Legislature and have some high-profile officeholders that would be strong candidates for Shelby's seat should it come up, as it is unlikely any of them will challenge for the seat if Shelby decides to run for a fifth term. However, Rep. Artur Davis (AL-7) is openly considering running against Shelby. He may opt to run in Alabama's open gubernatorial race instead, as Gov. Bob Riley is term limited.
