WASHINGTON, D.C. – Calling on West Virginians to rally around a fellow Mountaineer, U.S. Rep.

“From day one, this young man has won the hearts and votes of a national audience with his velvet voice and passion, determination, and warmth that epitomize the best of all West Virginians,” said Rahall.  “I truly believe he is uniquely talented and deserving, and I urge my fellow West Virginians to support him. This is one election that it is okay for us to vote more than once, so log on, text, and call from every phone you can; let’s all work together to make sure Landau goes all the way.”

Landau Eugene Murphy, Jr., was, last week, named a finalist in the NBC television reality series “America’s Got Talent,” which is a talent competition that features singers, dancers, and other performers vying for a $1 million top prize and the chance to become a headline act in Las Vegas.
