Shelley Moore Capito (the only GOP congresswoman from West Va.) has announced she will not run against Robert Byrd in next years Senate race. Because of his strong opposition to many Bush policies and his age, Byrd was a top target of the GOP. Now the candidate both sides considered to be the most formidable Byrd opponent has bowed out.

  1. Yeah, I’d read about that earlier. That’s a shame. 🙂

    Boy are the talking head right-wingers on Faux, hate radio, Newsmax etc going to be upset. They’ve been squawking, trashing and gearing up the fundraising because they were definitely taking Byrd down in ’06. Poor babies. They’d thought that was going to be one of their best chances to pick up a Dem seat.
