BECKLEY (WVVA) -- While outside agencies are spending their money to vote out Nick Rahall, he, along with other West Virginians are speaking up.

Saturday in Beckley the Congressman held a support rally called "Stand Up with Nick Rahall" where West Virginia residents and community leaders, including union members, were on hand to hear the Congressman.

He spoke about the negative campaigns.  He also spoke about being one of the longest serving representatives in history to take Congress.  He says he will continue to fight for coal mining jobs in West Virginia.

Rahall has several other stops this weekend, including a 93-year-old woman's birthday, before heading back to Washington D.C.
