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.
that was part of it, mainly it was a decision based on funds and polls. I’m not disappointed, I think it was a smart move on her part.
I’d love to have her as our Senator and it may happen at some point but she can’t win against Manchin. He’s too well known and too popular in this state.
