    Given today’s events, do you want to retract this comment (from delawareliberal.net):

    Mr Castle has been loyal to the GOP, he isn’t going anywhere.

    Whether, he runs is up to him.

    I created this post.

    Mike Castle has been loyal to the DEGOP. However this vote, is the biggest affront to the constituents that put him in office.

    I will support a true conservative should he have a challenger in any office in 2010. If there is no challenger, I will seek one to challenge him.

    I am miffed by this vote. It was senseless. He had a terrible bill that he didn’t even know what was in it. His vote no would have been a free vote. Even under those circumstances he voted yes.

    At a time when our economy is in free-fall, this was the wrong vote. Even 44 Democrats had the courage and common sense to oppose this one.
