This has a nice ring Republican Senator from West Virginia the last time there was an actual Republican Senator from West Virginia was 1958. John D. Hoblitzell, Jr. he lasted from January 25, 1958 to November 5, 1958 Hoblitzell was appointed to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Matthew M. Neely. There is hope as West Virginia has cleared the way for Govenor Joe Manchin to put a special election for the late Robert C. Byrd’s Senate seat on the November ballot. The seat will come up for re-election in 2012. This is just like in Massachusetts and we all know how well that went. The rush to ballot is to not cost the state two elections buy holding a special election. If you remember West Virginia voters overwhelmingly voted for Republican John McCain in the 2008 presidential race. So we welcome a special election that would put another Democratic Senate seat in play this year as they struggles to retain a majority. Top democrats Govenor Joe Manchin, Secretary of State Natalie Tennant, and Attorney General Darrell McGraw are all ready to run for the seat. There will be an interim selection which are former state Democratic Party chair Nick Casey; his successor, Larry Puccio; former Democratic governors Gaston Caperton and Bob Wise; Senate President Earl Ray Tomblin, D-Logan; and longtime Byrd aide Anne Barth. There is a short list of Republican candidates but in the current climate it will not take long for the GOP and Tea Party to pick a winner. The one name that has risen to the top is Republican Representative Shelley Moore Capito. Let us all say it together Republican Senator from West Virginia Shelley Moore Capito, that sounds nice.
