Capito is hesitant to run against Joe Machim, who’ll almost certainly be the DemocRAT nominee. However, she’s the only Republican who seems to have any chance at all.

I think Manchins appointment of Carte Goodwin has hurt him some, because it was so obviously done to pave the way for Manchin. Goodwin is only 36, has never held political office, and has been little more than a minor political hack to various prominent democrats. The reaction of 98% of West Virginians to the appointment was, "Who?!?". That is how unknown Goodwin was, outside of the Manchin administration. Even some of the political reporters on the local news, confessed to not knowing who he was.
Manchin obviously wanted somebody loyal who would not decide to run themselves, but that wasn't enough for him. He went farther and appointed somebody that didn't stand a snowballs chance even if they "betrayed him" and decided to run. It made Manchin look petty and political.

I hope she runs.
I hope she loses badly.
Here is why.
Next year, the Dems who totally control both state chambers, by very large margins, will redraw the 3 congressional districts into 1. Likely putting Charleston into the 3rd, and taking the northern portion into the 1st, thus eliminating her seat anyway.
So at best she is a one termer remaining.
She is also pro choice, and supports amnesty and bailouts and is pretty much a Christie Todd Whitman type.
So, if she runs, against Manchin, she’s done and gone.
We don’t really loose a seat or a vote long term, but we do get rid of a RINO.
And open up the races for real conservatives in WV.
Run Shelly Run!!
