While Republicans are generating a very smooth transition to their new leadership role in Congress, Democrats remain stuck in the muck. 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.

Democrats, Senatorial, chairmanship, ReidThat position, now held by Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey, is important for Democrats because 23 of their incumbent seats are up for re-election in 2012.

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.
