is there anyone else...what a wuss
Go ahead West Virginia, elect another Democrat who will shut down your coal industry.
Is she our Martha Coakley?
West Virginia is a fraud state that deserves ANYTHING that come to it.
too bad for the massively unemployed and poor people of WV (ranked 49 among states in income). They are to be kept on the democrat plantation, ruled by the Rockefellers etc who surely feel their pain.
Can’t the WV Republican party find another, and better, candidate?
Beating the ghost of Byrd would be an almost impossible task. Not sure I blame her.
JournoList trying to set the parameters...
What a surprise!!! Look guys, she knows her Congressional Seat is safe and she also knows that the Governor would defeat her by 10-15 percentage points in the General Election.
MY QUESTION: Why has the WV GOP not been grooming any viable candidates who can win state-wide office, other than Capito, who is more Liberal than the Democrat Manchin, on some social issues? I BLAME THE WV GOP hierarchy.
I am not an expert on W Va but I thought she was a “Hippo” (RINO lite).
Shelley Moore Capito is a liberal Republican on par with Mark Kirk and Mike Castle. Polls currently show her as “the most competitive”, but don’t buy into that BS. We can produce a much more principled conservative to run for this seat. West Virginia is NOT a liberal state and it is staunchly anti-Obama.
Unfortunately, I do not think there is a Republican that can beat Manchin. He might actually prove to be a surprise to the Democrats given many of his views.
Maybe they told her they would make sure she would up just like her Daddy.
She done capitolated!
Cheese eating surrender monkey.
Wonder what the pay off was to drop out.
Until the people start standing up and speaking out, and go to the poles and VOTE, then nothing is going to change. Rockefeller needs to go, and Manchin is the last person needed in Washington, but there again he puts on an apparent front of honesty, and thereby hoodwinking the populace in to believing he will do the job of bringing WV out of the stone age and next to last in education, jobs, housing, and so many other things. WV deserves what they vote.
I hear Alan Keyes is looking for a campaign.
horrible way for a bunch of crackers to act....
no wonder they left us
Why? Is she afraid she’ll win in a cakewalk and p*ss off the Dems???
