Rep. Joe ‘Just Adapt to Climate Change’ Barton Mulling a Senate Run

Last week, Rep. Joe Barton (R-Texas) invited the public, via Twitter, to join him for a Texas A&M football game in October. The suite was reserved, he said. All you need to do is bring $2,000.

Yesterday we learned why Barton, the senior Republican on the House Energy and Commerce Committee who won his last election with a comfortable 62 percent, is rummaging for cash. He wants the Senate seat soon to be vacated by Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas), who’s stepping down in December to run for governor. From the Dallas Morning News:

Barton, a 25-year House veteran who has long harbored Senate ambitions, has not set up a campaign committee, hired staff or created a Web site, unlike Williams and at least three other Republicans and two Democrats. But that doesn’t rule him out as a strong contender in a special election, he said, because “nobody yet has established themselves as a clear front-runner.”

“I’m serious enough to still be thinking about it,” he said.

In case you’ve forgotten who Barton is, he’s the member of the committee that produce the Waxman-Markey climate bill who thinks that, rather than doing something about climate change, humans should just adapt. He also pledged a “guerrilla war” to torpedo climate legislation and has busied himself during important committee hearings by reading the newspaper.
