Biden's Son Says No to Senate Seat

For the first time in 35 years Delaware will not have a Senator with the Biden surname. Vice President-elect Joe Biden's son Beau Biden, Delaware's Attorney General, recently released a statement that he will not accept an appointment to fill his father's vacated Senate seat----at least for now. (Nothing has been said about the special election for the seat which will be held in 2010).

Beau will spend the next year in Iraq fulfilling his obligations to the National Guard and then plans to return to his post as AG.
