When moderate Shelly Moore-Capito (R-WV) announced in late November that she would seek the U.S. Senate seat of Jay Rockefeller in 2014, she wanted to end speculation and get down to governing. At that time Politico noted varying responses, including those of Huntington Tea Party COO, Dale Anderson II. At that time, Anderson, who drew about 42% of the primary vote against fellow Republican, Kim Wolfe, suggested that Capito meet with conservatives concerning perceived liberal leanings in her voting record.
Yesterday, Capito met with Anderson at Bob Evans Restaurant in Huntington. “I had my reservations, and we do have differences, but today’s meeting was productive,” Anderson said. “We do agree on things and coal is one of them. She will stand up to Obama and liberal Democrats and defend West Virginia coal.”   Conjecturing her position on coal as the strongest among the state’s federal representatives, Anderson also stressed that it is his belief that Ms. Capito “will follow the law and will defend the citizens God given [Second Amendment] rights.”   Anderson explained, Congresswoman Capito has assured me she is pro-coal, pro-2nd Amendment and that further cuts to massive government spending is absolutely necessary. I was pleased with her recent "no" vote on tax increases. Capito voted against 650B in tax increases on job creators and 15B in government spending cuts.   //
