Rep. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., may be looking ahead to her Senate race, but she is keeping a close eye on the race to replace her in the 2nd District. And the seven-term congresswoman is not exactly confident about her partyâ€™s chances of holding the seat.
â€œI think we can hold it, but not without a lot of resources and a good candidate,â€ she said in a phone interview.
Her concern is geography. West Virginia divides the state into House districts horizontally, stacking the three districts on top of each other stretching from east to west.
â€œItâ€™s a difficult district to hold and it is hard to cover,â€ she said in a phone interview. â€œIt is five and a half hours from point to point.â€
And so the hunt for a GOP successor has started.
