Murray takes campaign job

Sen. Patty Murray has formally accepted the job as the head of the Senate Democrats's campaign operation.

A statement from outgoing Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Chairman Robert Menendez is congratulating Murray on her selection. It says all the standard things, such as she's the best choice to head the committee and she ran a good campaign this year against a tough opponent.

Not mentioned is the fact that several folks didn't want the job, and Murray had to be talked into it.

The DSCC is in charge of getting Democrats elected or re-elected to the Senate in the coming campaign cycle.
