No, it’s a smart move. Had she run, she would have lost and she would have lost her House seat.

She made the right move. Her funds will be better spent hanging on to her seat in the House vs. using those funds to fight two battles.

It was my understanding she could run for both at the same time ala Joe Lieberman.

McKinney said Capito’s decision was disappointing after the Legislature’s minority Republicans won the amendment that would have allowed Capito to run for both offices.”They went out on a limb and really extended themselves to get that provision in there,’’ McKinney said. “They’re going to be disappointed, and I think most West Virginians will be disappointed.’

In the end, Capito’s camp was concerned about legal challenges that might put her House seat in jeopardy.
