New Mexico's Wilson to pursue Domenici's seat, sources say - CNN.com (740 words)
Domenici, a Republican, announced Thursday that he won't seek re-election next year because he suffers from a progressive, incurable brain condition that might prevent him from completing another six-year term.
Domenici, first elected to the Senate in 1972 and re-elected five times, said he has been suffering for the last two years from frontotemporal lobar degeneration, or FTLD, a deterioration of brain tissue that can lead to personality changes, difficulty with speech and dementia.
Domenici joins three other Republican senators who also are retiring at the end of their terms next year, and, with four other Republican senators facing difficult re-election bids, the numbers are stacked against GOP hopes of recapturing the upper chamber of Congress.
