? Be careful what you wish for. RATS hold every single state-wide office in WV.
After this year they won’t. West Virginia has voted increasingly Republican every Presidential election except for what are loyalty races such as with Byrd. Mollohan just got ousted and will bet we will have one if not two new Republican Congressmen from West Virginia this year because of Cap and Trade and the Health Care boondoggle. Yes let the people vote. West Virginia has a different dynamic than a lot of other states it is very similar in ways to Arkansas, Tennessee, and Kentucky and is moving further and further right. The state wide offices are almost entirely held by what are truly conservative Democrats with the exception of Rockefeller who is dancing a different tune lately. He acts like he has some polling that shows that he is in trouble come 2012.
