West Virginia AG race



Here's one that hadn't been on my radar screen but evidently should have been: Republican challenger Hiram Lewis nearly managed to knock off (50.4/49.6) incumbent W.V. Attorney General Darrell McGraw, which would have been a major upset (AGs almost never lose re-election bids). Quoth AP: "Like his brother, Supreme Court Judge Warren McGraw, Darrell McGraw was targeted by Republicans for defeat for the way he has handled his office. Lewis accused McGraw of turning his public office into a large plaintiffs' law firm, alleging that he was using public money to boost the earnings of personal injury lawyers by assigning them cases that were pursued with state-employed staff."
