    She isn't a total  nut job but I think only a Joe Manchin democrat can win a federal office in WV. Rahall is lucky he still hangs on.
    Until Obama is gone WV is lost to democrats, the racial and cultural differences  with having a black president is to much for the average WV democrat.
    I have some property there and know the state. Racism is alive and well there. Obama lost every county in the state this time around. Capito can not be to anti labor if she wants to win though.

      I think WV is lost post Obama for the long run as well. And it's not as if Obama was the first Democratic presidential candidate to lose the state: Kerry ('04) and Gore ('00) had the bad luck to preceed him in doing that. That realigment was a long time coming.
