Main Street PAC Statement on Shelley Moore Capito’s (R-WV) Announcement of US Senate Run

(Washington, DC) – Yesterday, Rep. Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) announced her intention to seek the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Jay Rockefeller. In response, Sarah Chamberlain, on behalf of the Main Street PAC, issued the following statement:

“Shelley Moore Capito has been a common-sense conservative leader in the U.S. House who has compiled an impressive legislative record of success.  Rep. Capito has always put the people of West Virginia first.

“Yesterday, Rep. Capito announced her intention to see the U.S. Senate.  At a time when the Senate has become captive to gridlock and hyper-partisanship, Shelley Moore Capito would be a breath of fresh air.”
