RSCC opens fire

The first sling of mud in the 2006 elections has been flung. The Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee has announced an ad campaign against sitting Senator Robert Byrd, who has been reelected 8 times in his home state of West Virginia. Since Byrd has not explicitly announced his bid for reelection, and is getting quite old (87 years), I believe this move by the GOP is made in effort to show him how serious a challenge he will get, and hence influence him to step down.
