If Tammy Baldwin were to run for the Senate seat vacated by Herb Kohl, could she simultaneously run for reelection to her House seat?

You know, like the way Joe Biden ran for Vice President and for reelection to his Senate seat in 2008 (and then resigned the Senate seat). The answer is: no.

ADDED: I've reworded the title to this post because somebody in the comments found it ambiguous.

In that case:

Tammy! Please run for the Senate seat vacated by Herb Kohl.

You mean the rules actually apply to a Democrat?

Color me shocked!!!!

Shoddy phrasing. She could run again. Just not at the same time. D-

Well, she could lose both. But she has a better chance of winning her district, and not going for the senate seat.

Or, maybe, someone with a Tea Party label can swoop in and grab the senate vacancy.

Most of what we hear about elections is just BS.

Sometimes, elections are like the Mississippi ... and then? Levees don't hold. The last time we got floods like this time was way back in 1927. And, Herbert Hoover shot to fame, then.

Now? Both parties are weak on message.

While I think Obama did his "trick" with Israel because he is interested in building up the State Department, while marginalizing the military.

Why is that? Well, State gets all the money that it can from American taxpayers. And, then tosses it to foreign "entities" through the IMF arm.

If the bamster wins? Congress, and the military, won't be that important. Change will be wrought.

Wait a minute. She can't "fill" both seats. Wouldn't that give Governor Walker a chance to appoint the tuchis that goes into one of them?

The dyke is not going to win. She doesn't have a chance.

The commercial with her tits bouncing all over the place on a float next to "wonder woman" will be the nail in her coffin.

The guy who she ran against for the House in Dane County made sure that all his commercials included him and his girlfriend walking along a river. Enough said.

She has a seat for life in the house if she wants it.

Good.

(That she can't run for both)

Depends.

How much does she weigh?

If Baldwin doesn't tell us what she plans to do soon we can only assume the worst. Like any Democrat.
