Capito keynotes Mercer County Republican Party Victory Dinner

Posted:

The Mercer County Republican Party held its annual victory dinner Thursday night.
More than a hundred people were in attendance at the Princeton Elks Club to not only enjoy dinner but also participate in a silent auction an other special presentations.  The keynote speaker was the Honorable Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito.  Capito says she is encouraged by the recent gubernatorial elections in News Jersey and Virginia.

"I think it bodes well", Capito stated.  "I think it shows that the electorate is listening.  The electorate doesn't like the direction the country is going, especially in healthcare, but certainly in this area, in the energy fields.  This is a great year for Republicans because we represent those ideas of opportunity and jobs and energy and all the things that keep West Virginia rolling."

Rep. Capito is a candidate for the U.S. Senate seat being left vacant by Sen. Jay Rockefeller.  The democrat is not seeking reelection.
