CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- Republican congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito has won her seventh term representing West Virginia's 2nd District.
Capito defeated Democrat challenger Howard Swint on Tuesday.
Capito has fought against the Environmental Protection Agency, joining with other House Republicans to pass the ill-fated "Stop the War on Coal Act." She has accused the agency of working against states.
Swint had argued that voters wanted someone to challenge the coal industry and reject the notion that the EPA is out to kill jobs in West Virginia.
