How well will a Massachusetts liberal fit in among Southern blue-collar Democrats? That question will be answered over the next couple of weeks, when Elizabeth Warren goes to West Virginia to stump for Natalie Tennant, who is seeking to replace retiring Sen. Jay Rockefeller in a hotly contested race in coal country against Republican Rep. Shelley Moore Capito.
On July 14, Warren will head to the Eastern Panhandle, as Tennant, who is currently secretary of state, rolls out her education plan. Warren also plans to appear in Kentucky later this month with Alison Lundergan Grimes, the Democratic nominee for Senate.
West Virginia has been trending red, breaking from its Democratic roots. In 2012 President Obama lost all 55 counties, the first time a Democratic presidential candidate was completely shut out in West Virginia. Capito is the heavy favorite to win, and if she does, it would be the first time since 1956 that the state has picked a Republican to fill a Senate seat.
For Warren, being in coal country is a test of whether she can boost the Democratic ticket and whether she can find an audience among the kind of Democrats that supported Bill and Hillary Clinton. In 2008, Clinton scored her biggest presidential primary win in West Virginia over then-Sen. Barack Obama, and Bill Clinton won Kentucky and West Virginia both times he ran for president. More recently, Bill Clinton stumped for Grimes, who is up against Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell (R).
But coal will no doubt be the elephant in the room in West Virginia and Kentucky, given that Warren supports Obamas move to curb carbon emissions.

Cat fight ?
Why does everyone seem to have the hots for this broad? What has she ever done? Maybe it’s the high cheekbones.
This is my fear. Worse than Hitlary, as bad as the anti-Christ.
It’s amazing that Senator Warren is considered Presidential material.
She makes Christine O’Donnell look like a Mensa candidate.
It doesn’t have anything to do with Warren and everything to do with Hillary going down faster than her husband.
How'd that work out for Mitt Romney?
Isn’t she a Washington Redskin?
The Democrats need a woman to be president in 2016. Hillary is imploding and the party leaders know it so now they got to look for a replacement and Warren appears to be it.
She hustled her way to a sweet gig in academia.
Dances with Dollars is the cause celebre among the Commies.
They're both trying to build some momentum towards a presidential run, based on sucking some bucks from starry-eyed moonbats. I don't think either believes they'll get anywhere in the coming round.
The worst they can do is build up a good internet mailing list and a moderate sized pile of cash they can use on future campaigns.
You’re probably right. I don’t think those two rising star Marxist brothers in San Antonio with their Al Raza jihadist mother are going to work out for the ‘RATS in the upcoming election. Probably won’t work in 2016 either.
So the Dems have decided that their next nominee must be a woman?
she will take off one of her moccasins and dip her toe in southern water to test it.
Could Elizabeth Warren become the go-to Democrat this election cycle?
Let me think about that for a moment . . . “No.”
Few people outside the East Coast and political junkies have ever heard of Fauxcahontas.
The Democrats want a woman in the White House in 2016 and with Queen Hillary looking like toast with each passing day the media will start building up the dunce cap from Massachusetts.
Dana Loesh put it best.
“Hillary is just the rodeo clown for Elizabeth Warren”
