Democrats Struggle to Fill Senatorial Chairmanship

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid hasn’t even been able to find someone willing to take over the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) yet, Roll Call reports.

The majority leader appoints the DSCC chairman, unlike other leadership positions. Sens. Mark Warner of Virginia, Al Franken of Minnesota, and Michael Bennet of Colorado already have rejected offers for the job.

Potential candidates now include Sens. Tom Udall of New Mexico, Mark Udall of Colorado, and Patty Murray of Washington.
