Capito is more loyal to West Virginians

Natalie Tennant claims that she represents West Virginia; however, she only represents the interests of liberal, pro-abortion Washington interest groups.

Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito is a proven advocate and embodies the respect for life that West Virginians hold dear. We must elect officials who support the right to life and all of its joys that we, as adults, have experienced.

In over 14 years of public service, Shelley Moore Capito has been a strong voice for the unborn. For example, Shelley holds a 100 percent rating in the 113th Congress with National Right to Life and has been endorsed by West Virginia Right to Life for over six years. Additionally, she voted against federal funding for abortions and partial-birth abortions (except when endangering a mother’s life).

In a stark contrast, Natalie Tennant — a Washington replacement for Jay Rockefeller’s seat — will not vow to protect life but instead embrace an endorsement from Emily’s List — the nation’s foremost pro-abortion political machine. Emily’s List only endorses the most extreme pro-abortion Democratic female candidates who will push their abortion agenda, and Tennant is proud to do just that.

The record is clear: Shelley Moore Capito remains loyal to West Virginians while Tennant takes direction from Washington outsiders.

Thanks for kindness in checkout line

This letter is a thanks to the lovely young lady who was ahead of me at the checkout line at Kroger, Harper Road Store, on Friday, Feb. 7. What a blessing to me! Be assured that the gift has been passed on to another.

I looked for you in the parking lot to thank you, but I didn’t see you. Your kindness is greatly appreciated.
