Coal Group Endorses Capito
Second District Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito announced recently she's running for the U.S. Senate in 2014. A group called Coal Miners for Capito has thrown their support behind the Congresswoman in the new campaign. Some groups worry about the decline of the coal industry in the midst of the development of other energy sources, and Coal Miners for Capito believes she's the one to help the industry in the Senate. U.S. Senator Jay Rockefeller is up for reelection in 2014, and has supported legislation beneficial to coal miners in the past.
