I can’t imagine that Manchin will go along with a special election when he can have the sole say on who sits in Byrd’s seat for the next 2 1/2 years.

Any chance a republican could win a state-wide election?

From what I’ve read, WVa law in the instance in quite clear already.

Soros Eyes Secretaries

By Matthew Vadum on 12.4.09 @ 6:08AM

History's most notorious Georgian-turned-Russian, the politically astute Joseph Stalin once remarked, "The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything."

The lesson has not been lost on the increasingly notorious Hungarian-cum-American George Soros.

A group backed by Soros is gearing up to steal the 2012 election for President Obama and congressional Democrats by installing left-wing Democrats as secretaries of state across the nation. From such posts, secretaries of state can help tilt the electoral playing field.

I have been saying for some time that Manchin’s best shot at election is this year. Who can say what the political terrain will look like in 2012? And how does Manchin find an appointed Senator who will not want to keep the job once ensconced? Manchin is a very popular governor and could run on keeping the memory and legacy of Byrd alive. All that could be gone in 2012.

So, his Democrat Secretary of State comes out and says that she would welcome a change in state law to permit an earlier election? Hmmm? I smell a rat. Could be the Freepers may have to start demanding that they wait until 2012.

They need to change the law? The law very clearly states that they MUST hold an election. What better way to defuse the anger that the SOS is blatantly violating the law by rejecting an election than to have the Washington Pravda report that she is open to having the legislature pass a law to do what the law already says must be done.
