Byrd's announcement came just days after West Virginia businessman John Raese announced plans to challenge the veteran senator in the November election. Byrd and Nelson both face re- election. So does another Democrat from a state Bush won, North Dakota Senator Kent Conrad, who has not yet announced how he will vote.

Byrd and Alito
Byrd's announced for Alito. If I were Alito, I'd tell Byrd to keep his vote. How Byrd could have voted against Dr. Rice and then plan to vote for Alito with the comment Alito ...struck me as a man of his word just seems like plain old racism. Byrd still thinks like a Klansman. And a scared one at that.
