    The Republican-led Senator lied to the American people. They promised to repeal the failed Obamacare law for seven-and-a-half years. They ran their campaigns on repealing Obamacare. But they all lied. And then Mitch McConnell had the gall to blame President Trump for expecting too much from the senate! .Sens. tweeting support of McConnell: ▪️Cornyn ▪️Corker ▪️Tillis ▪️Isakson ▪️Collins ▪️Hatch ▪️Gardner ▪️Heller ▪️Flake ▪️Young ▪️Capito.

    Republican Sens. Shelley Moore Capito (W.Va.) and Susan Collins (Maine) said on Tuesday that they will not support moving forward with the plan to repeal ObamaCare with a delayed replacement. "My position on this issue is driven by its impact on West Virginians. With that in mind, I cannot vote to repeal ObamaCare without a replacement plan that addresses my concerns and the needs of West Virginians," Capito said in a statement. Collins added to NBC that she is still a "no" on proceeding to the House-passed bill, which would be used as a vehicle for any Senate action. The...

    A handwritten note from President Trump to West Virginia Senator Shelly Moore Capito is generating a lot of buzz, especially on social media. Capito wrote asking for support on the Miner's Protection Act, stalled in Congress. The President wrote back, saying: "Shelley: Great I am all for the miners." The coal industry appreciates the response.
  • Sen.-Elect Capito: Will Be 'Extremely Aggressive' in Trying to Rollback EPA Regulations [W.Va]

    Sen.-elect Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) pledged on Fox News Sunday to be extremely aggressive in trying to rollback some regulations by the Environmental Protection Agency. Extremely aggressive, she said when asked how aggressive she would be in the Senate in trying to rollback some of the EPA regulations. That is my promise to West Virginia. We have lost over the last two years, 5,000 jobs. Those are just coal jobs. We had several thousand other miners who are what are called a warn notice, meaning they're potentially going to be losing their jobs. That doesn't even count the transportation job,...
  • Capito becomes first female Senator, first Republican in 56 years for West Virginia

    U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito will be the first female Senator representing the Mountain State, and first Republican in 56 years. Just minutes after the polls closed, the Associated Press called the race. Typically, two candidates running for a spot in the U.S. Senate to represent a state don't share so much in common. That was not necessarily the case in the race for retiring U.S. Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va.'s, spot in Washington. Capito and opponent, Secretary of State Natalie Tennant, ran campaigns on pro-coal, pro-guns and pro-jobs; just some of the platforms each candidate shared. However, West Virginians showed...

    History will be made in West Virginia this year when Mountain State voters elect their first female U.S. senator. They will choose between Republican Rep. Shelley Moore Capito and Secretary of State Natalie Tennant for the seat being vacated by Democratic incumbent Sen. Jay Rockefeller. The GOP has targeted West Virginia as one of six Senate seats it needs to win to gain control of the Senate. The others include: Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Montana, North Carolina and South Carolina. In this increasingly Red State, Tennant brought out a firebrand liberal, Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren. Capito shot back with...

    Real Clear Politics ^ | March 23, 2014 | Salena Zito
    Shelley Moore Capito largely has avoided national attention. Now her U.S. Senate race has raised her profile as one of the Republican Party's best hopes to tip the chamber's balance of power. The party could win a narrow majority this fall if it holds onto its 45 Senate seats and takes six of the 55 held by Democrats, including that of West Virginia's Jay Rockefeller, who is retiring. She is one of the few moderate candidates out there and has the right profile in this state to become the first Republican senator since the 1950s. If she beats her Democratic...

    Coal supporters are rallying behind Rep. Shelley Moore Capito's (R-W.Va.) call for the Environmental Protection Agency to include coal-producing states on its listening tour. The agency announced Thursday that the first two stops in its 11-meeting listening tour, meant to gather input on carbon emissions limits for power plants, would be postponed due to the government shutdown. Earlier this week, the agency said it would not stop in heavy coal-producing states. House Republicans pushed back, saying the tour conveniently avoids the states where the proposed carbon emissions rule, a key part of President Obama's climate change agenda, would spike electricity...

    A conservative group has endorsed Republican Pat McGeehan over Rep. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) in the West Virginia Senate race. The National Republican Liberty Caucus, which counts Tea Party-backed Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Mike Lee (R-Utah) among its endorsements, issued its first endorsement of the 2014 cycle for McGeehan. Pat McGeehan has shown leadership skills badly needed in the Senate," said RLC Chairman Matt Nye in a statement. "Receiving the Republican Liberty Caucus endorsement is a testament to his commitment to the principles of individual liberty, limited government, and free enterprise." McGeehan is running as a...

    Possibly by the middle of the week and definitely by the end of the week is when U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., will announce if she intends to run for West Virginia's vacant U.S. Senate seat. "The law hasn't been changed yet, so there is no decision to be made now," she said Saturday at the Berkeley County Republican Club's Reagan Picnic at Poor House Farm Park, where she was the featured speaker. State legislators continued to meet in special session Saturday to change the succession law to fill the late Robert C. Byrd's unexpired term, which runs through...

    A special Senate election this November to replace the late Robert Byrd is still awaiting the green light from West Virginias attorney general, but popular Democratic Governor Joe Manchin is the early leader in hypothetical matchups with two of his possible Republican opponents. A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in West Virginia, taken Thursday night, shows Manchin with 53% support, while Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito earns 39% of the vote. Three percent (3%) prefer another candidate in the race, and five percent (5%) are undecided. If former West Virginia Secretary of State Betty Ireland is his GOP...

    Congresswoman gets contributions from GOP pro-choice PACOn Sunday morning, West Virginians for Life Inc. targeted Democratic congressional candidate Anne Barth by placing red-and-white campaign leaflets on car windshields in church parking lots throughout the Charleston area. Printed by the National Right to Life Committee based in Washington, D.C., the leaflets urged voters to back Rep. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va. The group portrayed Capito as pro-life and Barth as pro-choice. Capito, however, has received nearly $52,000 in campaign contributions from a national organization created to back pro-choice Republicans, called the WISH List. State Democratic Party Chairman Nick Casey said, "Capito has...

    (The Register-Herald Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Oct. 4--Sticking to her conservative principles, Rep. Shelley Moore Capito again Friday voted to oppose Wall Street's multibillion-dollar parachute on its second, and this time successful, float through the House. West Virginia's two Democrats in the House -- Nick Rahall and Alan Mollohan -- voted with the majority in a 263-171 roll call. "While we've seen some key adjustments around the edges, this is fundamentally the same bill we considered on Monday," Capito, R-W.Va., said afterward.

Organizers said the coalition will help spread the message about the importance of clean coal technology and the advantages of tapping the country's vast coal reserves. As part of John McCain's "all of the above" energy plan, the Lexington Project, clean coal will be a strong component of the...

    Rep. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., says she was not told about suggestive e-mails that a Florida congressman sent to a 16-year-old former Capitol page, even though she is one of three representatives who oversee the page program. Several high-ranking House Republicans have known about the e-mails for months, including Rep. John Shimkus, R-Ill., chairman of the House Page Board. Late last year, Shimkus met with Foley about the e-mails. But Shimkus never told Capito or the boards other member, Rep. Dale Kildee, D-Mich., about them until Friday, according to all three. Theres only three of us on the page board....

Capito said she will instead seek a fourth term in the U.S. House of Representatives.
