UH OH: Democratic Rep. Mollohan faces primary challenge over earmarks.

His rival in Tuesday’s primary is state Sen. Mike Oliverio, who has criticized the agenda of President Barack Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. In a state where Republican presidential nominee John McCain won handily in 2008, that criticism has helped the 46-year-old financial adviser attract the support of some of West Virginia’s tea partiers as well as former Mollohan allies.

“I think the voters in northern West Virginia have simply lost confidence in Congressman Mollohan,” Oliverio said. “They’ve lost confidence in his ability to conduct himself and his affairs in Washington in a proper manner.”

So have I.
