Ry Rivard at the Charleston Daily Mail: Moore/Capito would have been historically nasty campaign; Capito could reap her seniority/connections to be a Hill leader if the GOP takes over Congress in November
Post-Gazette: GOP has rare opportunity to ride voter discouragement into win
Politico: Decision leaves GOP in a bind
AP: State GOP chair says he's heard from no serious candidates
Salon: There is no historical guide for Capito in this "truly bizarre special election process"
The Swamp/Chicago Tribune: With so many big Senate races this year, the National Republican Senatorial Committee is not poised to fund Capito (or another Repub) aggressively.
Hotline: Another GOP name could be Bob Adams of the League of American Voters.
