Biden wins 7th Senate term but may not serve

WILMINGTON, Del. - November 4, 2008 - The call is based on an analysis of voter interviews, conducted for The Associated Press by Edison Media Research and Mitofsky International.

Biden won't serve a full Senate term if running mate Barack Obama wins the presidency.

Under that scenario, Biden resigns his Senate seat and Delaware gets a new Democratic senator. Outgoing Democratic Gov. Ruth Ann Minner would likely appoint Biden's replacement. Potential contenders include Lt. Gov. John Carney and the senator's son, Attorney General Beau Biden.
