WEST VIRGINIA (5/13 PRIMARY)

Mountain Mama, Take Me Home

WV "could play a significant role" in helping Hillary Clinton "overcome" Barack Obama. Regardless of what happens in NC and IN, WV "should remain a contentious one." Kanawha Co. Commission pres. Kent Carper: "She does really well with traditional Democratic voters. West Virginia has a lot of those voters, and the state has traditionally supported her husband, President Clinton."

Carper believes Clinton resonates more with WVans "with her stances on religion, gun rights and labor unions." Wesleyan College prof. Robert Rupp: "Obama doesn't need to win West Virginia. He just has to do well and hold her to less than a double-digit margin" (Stump, Charleston Daily Mail, 4/14).
