The real news is that Capito is apparently passing on the West Viriginia Senate race, making Manchin (age 62) an even stronger favorite to take the seat.
But I couldn't let pass the additional news that former WV Secretary of State Ken Heckler has filed to challenge Manchin in the primary. Oh, Heckler's age? How about a nice ripe 95. That's three years older than the late Senator Byrd was. So, those who want the 112th Senate to keep the streak going and once again be the oldest ever...well, you know what to do.
