Who Will Control WV Legislature?

Who Will Control WV Legislature?

Candidates begin to file for West Virginia offices tomorrow.   The 2014 election will not be like any we have seen when it comes to the WV Legislature.  A national movement has been underway which has helped both Republicans and Democrats finance their efforts to take total control of Legislatures, Governorships and enact policies not getting done in messy Washington environment.

Over the last few years as I follow national politics it became clear Alabama Republican success at winning control of state government could be a model for WV Republicans.  Just as the filing period opens today’s New York Times has a long piece, not only about Alabama, but how money is moving across state lines to impact local races.

Anyone Democrat or Republican with an interest in the outcome of the 2014 battle to control the WV Legislature will want to read about the national strategy to “help both parties consolidate local control.”

Here is the link to what could be the plan for West Virginia in 2014.
