West Va. Democrats Say No to Mollohan

Ad Feedback

The anti-establishment political tide has spread beyond the conservative Tea Party movement.

West Virginia Democrats held their state primary on Tuesday.  Their ballots toppled longtime 14-term Democratic Representative Alan Mollohan. He lost the party's nomination for his congressional seat to state Sen. Mike Oliverio.

And Mollohan is not alone.

Political analysts say several White House-favored lawmakers face liberal voters who don't want party elites telling them what to do. They say that includes former Republican Senator Arlen Specter from Pennsylvania. Rep. Joe Sestak, who has called himself a true Democrat, has erased Specter's big lead in the polls.

Specter's lead continues to shrink with less than a week until The Keystone State's primary.
