Election 2010: Congress

  • Another group opposed to federal health care legislation is including West Virginia in an ad campaign targeting congressional Democrats on the issue. Americans for Responsible Health Care is warning U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall, D-3rd, and six of his colleagues not to vote for what may emerge from ongoing talks. Politico has an item.
  • The Hill is counting Rahall as "undecided" and Rep. Alan Mollohan, D-1st, as a "no comment" in its continuing "whip count" of House Democrats on health care legislation.
  • Public Broadcasting (with audio) is among those reporting on legislation co-sponsored by Mollohan and Rahall that would "prevent the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency from regulating greenhouse gases from stationary sources, such as coal-fired power plants, for the next two years."
  • The Charleston Daily Mail quotes Rep. Shelley Moore Capito, R-2nd, and several of Rahall and Mollohan's would-be GOP challengers to report that "officials say bill will not save jobs."
  • Mollohan's Democratic primary opponent, state Sen. Mike Oliverio, D-Monongalia, wants them to face off at a series of debates before the May election, MetroNews reports.
