Howard Swint, “a common man running a common campaign to represent the common people,” wants to wrest the 12-year Second District U.S. House seat from Republican incumbent Shelley Moore Capito. Swint, 53, of Charleston, W.Va., said Monday he is running such a low-key campaign that he has yet to raise “enough money to count.” He doesn't accept campaign contributions from corporations or special-interest groups. “I only accept individual donations,” he said. Swint seems undaunted that he's facing a mountainous fight for Capito's seat.

West Virginia Republican Party state Chairman Conrad Lucas said Tuesday he is “completely confident” the GOP will hold Shelley Moore Capito's seat in Congress when she runs for the U.S. Senate in 2014. Since Capito announced her campaign to replace Jay Rockefeller, only former state Del. Larry V. Faircloth, R-Berkeley, has publicly announced a campaign to run for the 2nd District House seat. But Lucas said Tuesday that he expects more candidates to enter the race after the regular session of the state Legislature ends in April.

U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito and fellow Republicans celebrated the grand opening of their “victory office” Tuesday in Martinsburg, which they will use to spur voters to turn out for their candidates in the Nov. 6 general election. “It's not getting everybody out to vote. It's getting the people that are going to vote your way out,” Capito said in an interview at the newly opened campaign office at 110 N. Queen St.  “So, we have to identify those voters - it's not rocket science.” Yet, Capito said the party also intends to “get a little more scientific” about trying to identify likely voters, how they feel about certain issues and how strongly they feel about voting.
