Big Political Development on Friday: Senate retirement announcement

WEST VIRGINIA

From Eric Dondero:

Can you say United States Senator Shelley Capito?

Democrat incumbent Sen. Jay Rockefeller somewhat unexpectedly announced his retirement. He had been mulling the decision for months.

Early odds are on longtime Congresswoman and Republican Shelly Capito to take the seat. Capito had long been rumored to run, even if Rockefeller stayed in the post. Capito has a reputation of a moderate to conservative legislator, strong on the 2nd Amendment.
