Ireland to Pass on Senate Race, Catlett to Enter Race

West Virginia Secretary of State Betty Ireland will announce this morning on Talkline with Hoppy Kercheval that she will not run for the US Senate next year against Senator Byrd (who caught a few ZZZs on the Senate floor Tuesday). This will open the field for the entry of former WVU basketball coach Gale Catlett, who has been heavily recruited in recent weeks by the White House after Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito demurred on the race.
