Rep. Alan B. Mollohan (D-W.Va.) lost his bid for a 15th term Tuesday in a primary defeat that further affirms the anti-incumbent sentiment coursing through the country. Mollohan hadn’t faced a serious primary fight in more than a decade and was seen in some circles as unbeatable, given that the state’s 1st Congressional District seat had been in his family since 1968. (His father held it for seven terms before he won it.)
Mollohan had drawn opposition for his vote in favor of President Obama’s health-care bill. SOURCE
Another health-care bill supporter sent packing for home! What happen to the Obama saying that the democrats up for re-election didn’t have anything to worry about cause they had him with them!
This November election is starting out to be an interesting one to say the least. I have a feeling there will be many more suitcases being packed ready to leave Washington D.C. and the democrats can thank Obama for helping them pack!
