BECKLEY, W.Va. — One of this year’s most popular campaigners for the GOP will be in West Virginia on Tuesday to publicly endorse three Republican candidates in the Mountain State ahead of the November midterm elections.
At those events, he’ll be supporting U.S. Senate Republican nominee Shelley Moore Capito, 2nd Congressional District Republican nominee Alex Mooney and 3rd Congressional District Republican nominee Evan Jenkins.
Capito is running for the seat retiring U.S. Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.) currently holds. Mooney is seeking Capito’s current U.S. House seat. Jenkins is challenging longtime 3rd District Congressman Nick Rahall (D-W.Va.).
Romney will headline a private Republican fundraiser in Charleston along with a Working for West Virginia Jobs Rally that’s open to the public in Beckley. That rally is scheduled to begin at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday at Tamarack.
Romney won every county in West Virginia in the 2012 Presidential election against President Barack Obama.
Already this year, he’s made appearances on behalf Republican candidates in New Hampshire, Florida and Iowa. Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 4.
Though Romney has said he will not be running for President in 2016, that has not stopped efforts to draft him. The Utah Republican Party has created a website — DraftMitt.org — for the effort.
