Republican state Del. Rick Snuffer is moving toward a run against 18-term Rep. Nick Rahall (D-W.Va.). Snuffer told Roll Call that he will make a final decision by the end of October. He lost a bid for the seat in 2004, getting just 35 percent to Rahall’s 65 percent.
Rahall won with only 56 percent of the vote in 2010, his lowest percentage since 1990, when he squeaked by with 52 percent.
Each year since 1990, CQ Roll Call has reviewed the financial disclosures of all 541 senators, representatives and delegates to determine the 50 richest members of Congress. This year's report, derived from forms covering the calendar year 2012, shows it took a net worth of $6.67 million to crack the exclusive club.
