Embattled Sen. Larry Craig, R-Idaho, is expected to resign soon, according to reports today, but it’s unlikely to be a pickup seat for Democrats anytime soon, note political observers. Idaho is a solid red state, and President Bush won handily in 2004 with 69 percent of the vote. Both senators and both representatives are Republican, as is the governor, who would certainly appoint a Republican to replace Craig.
It’s nationally where Craig hurts the GOP, with yet another over-the-top scandal. That’s why party leaders are eager for him to step down.
