    with a resume that looks pretty solid, employment under the influential Dems in the area, and no elected experience?

    It just seems like the recent electoral record of Ds with that sort of record is kind of lousy. I guess Goodwin could have a good case for a WV2, but there's probably a few good Ds in that area who could win that seat.

    As for the whole succession and having to hold 7 statewide elections in the span of 30 months.. yeah, a lot of that might just be the realities of the laws they were working with.

    Tennant does have a strong case with the election results lobby i'm sure since the results going back to 1950 were posted on her site during the time she's been in office. [Not sure if they ever resolved the quirks of how some of their source documents listed McDowell County in a weird place alphabetically (forget if they listed it before or after the Ms) but they just entered the numbers as if it was in order, leading to some swapped numbers.]. Least interesting lobby ever.

    The Republican Party isn't a party of small government, it's a party of a government for the few. @bhindepmo

      ...better the occasional faults of a government that lives in a spirit of charity, than the consistent omissions of a government frozen in the ice of its own indifference. -FDR, 1936
