West Virginia is on our 2014 Priority List because it presents conservatives with a major pick-up opportunity in a state President Obama lost badly in 2012. Incumbent Democratic Senator Jay Rockefeller has announced that he will retire at the end of his term, increasing the odds that a conservative can win this seat.
Note: SCF will not endorse U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) because her record in the House of Representatives on spending is too liberal. Republicans in West Virginia deserve a strong conservative to represent them in the U.S. Senate.
