It is very well worth debating this. This seat if a special election is held can be a GOP pickup and a conservative one at that. It is well worth fighting for. We do not want to wait till 2012 and then have to run against someone like Gov. Joe Manchin which will make the seat harder to pick up.
It will be a mistake to let this seat go down without a fight because once it goes red it will stay red.

We should be jumping on this with both feet...if we are just going to roll over because they want us to, why not just give up now and allow this Federal Usurpation?

If WV refuses to hold a special election, the Senate should just refuse to seat the governor’s appointee in 2011.

This bit of common sense may require a Republican majority, however.
