Is it time to stick a fork in Alex Mooney?
Okay, Donald Trump still faces additional indictments, but that doesn’t appear to matter in West Virginia; for the most part, the WV Trump Party still hangs on his every word. And while the former president has not yet endorsed anyone in the WV Republican senatorial primary, rumors appear to suggest that he won’t:
As it currently stands, Mooney has no chance without a Trump endorsement. And where does he go if this is true? Liberal blogger Howie Klein speculates:
Interesting. Alex Mooney vs. Riley Moore? Who would I root for?
How about additional important legislation from the congressman? On Go Victory TV (whatever that is), no less:
First the gold standard, then maps, and now “faith, family, and patriotism” – yes, this is what Mooney thinks is important legislation for West Virginians.
Here's Senator Shelley not sounding much like a Trump supporter:
“I don’t even know who he’s getting indicted by,” added Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., who told The Messenger as she headed to the Senate floor that she had “just read” about the likely indictment. “It’s a never-ending story.”
What? No Trump sympathies, Senator? It looks like Capito will not be running for re-election in 2026.
