Geez! Shocked Shelley must really love being in the House.

FWIW, I don't think many swing voters are going to hold her father's misdeeds from over twenty years ago against her. If they did, the third of the state she represents would've never elected her to Congress back in 2000. I doubt voters in the other two WV house districts are any more fixiated on Arch Moore than Capito's consituents were two decades ago, let alone today.

That's not really what I meant. What I was getting at was more that she might have psychological issues about running for statewide office because of what happened to her father.

Interesting theory. Could be. Though maybe that experience would make her all the more likely to try redeeming the family name? Tough to say.

Whatever it is its enough she's giving up a pretty clear run for being top dog in Charleston. Tomblin might give her a close run based on these numbers, but its unlikely he'd avoid a serious primary challenge and come out unscathed for the general. Capito conversely would likely clear the GOP field just by announcing.
