Burns, who is on a media tour of Montana this week, also said he has no intentions of dropping out of the 2006 U.S. Senate race, quashing a rumor that has floated around both Helena and Washington, D.C.

“Write it down, real quick: I've never had more enthusiasm or higher energy for a campaign in my life than I got right now, OK? End of story,” Burns told the Lee Newspapers State Bureau reporters in an interview. “I never had this much enthusiasm in 1988. Take it to the bank. Make book on it.”

On the GOP side, for 2016, look out for Gov. Phill Kline (KS), Gov. Ralph Reed (GA), Gov. JD Hayworth (AZ), Sen. David Vitter (LA), among others.

Yes! I am very relieved, now we have a real chance to pick up another seat in the senate.  The Republicans could well rue the day Conrad Burns decided to carry on running for re-election.  I wish Trent Lott would do the same, hurry up and state whether he intends to run again or not; the suspense annoys me.

That's good, though I have to admit I still fear that Burns will pull through. Still, Dems have had a good trend recently in Montana.

I can't believe I'd just posted the 'Will Conrad Burns Retire?' thread when this popped up!  Burns is damaged now and he has never been overly popular in Montana.  Still I think the campaign will be close.

The situation with Burns seems to be getting worse each day.  Vote for Jon Tester for Montana's next Senator!

The Dems haven't won anything in Montana without the opposition supremely screwing up.

Burns hasn't quite yet.

Burns is an incompetent jerk, but not a headline-leading one.

Hmmm why would a New Democrat support Tester over Morrison?  Morrison appears to be more electable and more of a New Democrat/DLC type...
