At a Charleston Daily Mail editorial board meeting yesterday, West Virginia’s Democrat Senate candidate Natalie Tennant refused to say whether she voted for President Obama. Washington Examiner,
U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito, the Republican candidate, said without hesitation that she voted for Gov. Mitt Romney, and noted that all 55 counties in West Virginia did as well.
But Tennant simply said she “voted for the Democratic Party” and went on to complain about Obama.
“But I am as angry as anybody about Barack Obama and his attitude toward West Virginia and his attitude toward coal,” Tennant said, adding that she invited Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy to West Virginia and then protested the agency’s coal regulations.
