This ought to be an interesting one to watch in 2010 as Carnahan seeks to replace the execrable Christopher "Kit" Bond. No republicans have declared yet, but former Senator Jim "No Talent' Talent is said to be interested, as is former House minority whip Roy Blunt. If either of those two lunkheads gets the nomination Carnahan should win. State Treasurer Sarah Steelman, who lost a GOP primary last year for governor, is also said to be in the mix.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan entered the U.S. Senate race Tuesday, seeking to follow in the political footsteps of her mother and late father.

Carnahan, a Democrat, is the first candidate of either party to officially enter the race after Republican Sen. Kit Bond announced last month that he will not seek re-election in 2010.

She announced her candidacy in a video posted on her campaign Web site that highlighted the economy and her role as secretary of state in cracking down on investment schemes.
