As I just pointed out in the other thread, her dad losing re-election by almost 18pts in 1988 might have something to do with her reluctance to run statewide. Politicians, much like the rest of us, are not rational creatures. But I'm just speculating.

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.
