Capito Declines to Challenge Byrd

US Representative Shelley Moore Capito has announced she will not challenge Robert C. Byrd in his quest to win a ninth term in the US Senate next year. While in the short term this may be good news for Byrd, and for Democrats seeking to win control of the Senate in '06, in the longer term it's probably even better news for Capito who will likely remain the most popular GOP politician in the state for some time to come.
