(Beverly)  The West Virginia Republican Assembly met in special convention last week for the purpose of endorsing a candidate for Governor. The organization, which is associated with the National Federation of Republican Assemblies, voted to endorse Republican State Senator Clark Barnes (R-Randolph) in the upcoming primary on Saturday, May 14th.

 “Two things stuck out to the assembly,” said Mark Scott, President of the group. “First is Senator Barnes’s record of consistent conservatism. He doesn’t just say what he will do. He has a record to prove it.” 

"The second thing is history of winning races while having less funds than his opponent,” said Scott. “This will be crucial in the upcoming primary and general election.”  

The National Federation of Republican Assemblies was originally established in 1934 and is the oldest and largest Republican volunteer organization in the nation. 

For his part, Senator Barnes said that he was humbled by the West Virginia Republican Assembly’s decision. “These are the kind of strong Republican volunteers who help our cause in good times and bad,” said Barnes.  “I am running so that their families and communities can have the future we all want for West Virginia. With the help of good folks like this who understand our state and its potential, this is the year we’re going to kick in the door and bring conservative values back to our state capitol.”
