Another Democrat Senate Seat In Play??

Via Jennifer Rubin, this tidbit - the late Senator Robert Byrd's Democrat Senate seat in West Virginia might also be up for grabs this November:

West Virginia Gov. Joe Manchin voiced support for holding a special election this year to fill the late Sen. Robert Byrd’s seat, announcing that he would request a legal opinion from the state attorney general to determine if a vote could be held. Manchin, a Democrat who said he would be “highly” interested in running for the seat himself, expressed discomfort with Secretary of State Natalie Tennant’s ruling that the governor should name a placeholder to the seat until it comes up for election in 2012.

His opponent in a November 2010 special election would likely be popular Republican Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito, in a state McCain carried handily over Obama.

please helps me write more gooder!
