CHARLESTON, WV – Surrounded by family, legislators and supporters, Senator Shelley Moore Capito filed paperwork to be on the ballot for U.S. Senate today. She released the following statement.
“A lot has been accomplished over the last five years. I’m proud to file for reelection today based on my record delivering for families and communities across our state.
Federal funding to treat those suffering from opioid addiction has more than doubled.
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act has delivered real saving for West Virginia families and helped turn our economy around. These tax cuts, along with President Trump’s efforts to rollback burdensome regulation, have helped make West Virginia’s economy one of, if not the best, in the nation.
Capito Connect was launched with h the goal of connecting every corner of our state with high-speed broadband. With it $15 million in new funding has come to West Virginia to spur economic growth, improve education and inspire entrepreneurship.
Nearly $170 million in new transportation grants have been secured to rebuild our roadways and improve safety.
I’m forever humbled by the confidence voters placed in me to serve as their voice in Washington. I look forward to traveling the state in the months to come and campaigning. Working together we can win big in 2020 and deliver even better results in the years to come.”
