WEST VIRGINIA PRIMARY
Capito, Tennant to face off in November for Rockefeller's US Senate seat in West Virginia

Reported by: Associated Press

CHARLESTON, W.Va.


Democrat Natalie Tennant is wasting no time attacking her Republican opponent, Rep. Shelley Moore Capito, after each easily won their respective party primary contests.

Tennant cast the Senate contest Tuesday night as a battle between big money politics and blue-collar grit, with Capito beholden to powerful outside interests.

Capito criticized Tennant's tone, saying the public doesn't want a negative campaign. The winner of the general election in November will be West Virginia's first female senator.

There are nearly twice as many registered Democrats as Republicans in West Virginia, and the state hasn't elected a GOP Senator since the 1950s. But Capito is the favorite to win the seat being vacated by retiring Democratic Sen. Jay Rockefeller thanks in large part to President Barack Obama's unpopularity in coal country.
