Rockefeller Still Mum on 2014

Though Rep. Shelley Moore Capito (R) announced plans to run for his seat, Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) would not comment on whether he even intended to run for re-election, the Washington Post reports.

Said Rockefeller: "Everyone I talk to in West Virginia is tired of the non-stop campaigning... Politics can wait."

First Read: "To us, this may be an indication that incumbent Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D), 75, probably won't seek re-election. And retirements could be a big story for Democrats in 2014, with potential retirees in Rockefeller, Tom Harkin (IA), Dick Durbin (IL), Max Baucus (MT), Tim Johnson (SD), and Carl Levin (MI)."
