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!!
The democrats did nothing to hurt her when they redrew the lines the last time. Doubt they would this time. With no changes in the number of seats there is usually minimal change in the drawing of the districts.
I don’t love her but better her than another boot licking democrat in the Senate. Namely Manchin, his appointment of his toady confirms he will run. Manchin would kneel before Zod (Obama and the next rat Senate leader).

looks like she can run for both her house seat and the Senate seat.
