Coal Mine Owner Money Pouring Secretly Int o West Virginia Senate Race

Natalie Tennant, Democrat and WV Secretary of State, endorsed by the United Mine Workers, by Senator Jay Rockefeller of WV and many others is running against Shelley Moore Capito who has always voted to extend the illegal wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. She is a Republican in West Virginia in a rare contest of 2 women for senate.

Capito's name reminds us of the decapitation of West Virginia mountains by the coal owners whose interests she has represented as they deforest, cause acid rain, poison watersheds, destroy animal habitat, and pollute the air of all.

The United Mine Workers who have lost through the decades tens of thousands of miners to mine cave-ins, black lung disease etc. endorse Natalie Tennant for the Senate.
