Graham won't run for U.S. Senate In 2006
Columbia, MO – State Senator Chuck Graham, Democrat from Columbia, announced Sunday his decision not to challenge U.S. Republican Senator Jim Talent in 2006.
Instead, Graham says he'll head the state Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in scouting candidates to run against the freshman senator.
Graham's confident the party can find someone and says Claire McCaskill is an appealing candidate. The state auditor lost her bid for governor last fall.
