    •  More serious guess..Nick Rahall? (0+ / 0-)

      I could see 2014 being an awful year for Dems in WVA with Capito running up the score in the Senate race if no serious Dem gets in.

      Combined with the "war on coal" message, if a strong candidate were to choose to run I could see Rahall deciding to retire rather than facing a super difficult race.

      •  I'd say Young is more likely (0+ / 0-)

        He's older, less competent, and will count on midterm turnout making it harder for Dems to win his seat.  Back to WV,  I really hope Tennant runs.  She'd be a strong candidate who'd keep it close (and could win).  One of the few possible strong candidates refused to run.  I still hope Tennant is planning  on running here as much as I want Grimes to run in KY (the latter being more likely).

        •  I too hope Tennant runs. (0+ / 0-)

          But unfortunately I'm worried we end up with a "some dude" here.

          •  By the way, what I meant by (0+ / 0-)

            one of the few strong candidates chose not to run, I was referring to GOP candidates against Rahall (the only State Senator in his district declined to run).
