Capito camp calls Tennant Obama's "biggest supporter" in W.Va.

WASHINGTON (WVVA) - Shortly after Democrat Natalie Tennant officially announced her candidacy for the U.S. Senate, the campaign manager for her potential opponent released a statement labeling Tennant as a support of "President Obama's entire extreme agenda."

Following is the full statement:

"As the Chairman of the West Virginia Democratic Party confirmed, Harry Reid and the liberal D.C. Democrats handpicked Natlie Tennant to be their nominee. It is no wonder they picked West Virginia's biggest supporter of Obamacare, the War on Coal and President Obama's entire extreme agenda." - Chris Hansen, campaign manager for Capito for West Virginia

Capito had previously announced her intentions to purse the Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Jay Rockefeller on the Republican ticket.

If both Tennant and Capito win their parties' respective primaries, they would square off for the vacant seat next fall.
