ChamPAC Announces General Election Endorsements

ChamPAC, the political action committee of the Charleston Regional Chamber of Commerce, has made the following endorsements in the Nov. 4 general election. In making its endorsements, the Chamber identified candidates who:

- Advocate policies that support job creation for our area and state,
- Strive to improve the quality of life for our citizens,
- Support metro-services and metro-government,
- Support responsible tax reduction while maintaining fiscal responsibility in state government
- Work to keep our young and educated in West Virginia.

In addition to the above criteria, consideration was given to a candidate's effectiveness in the legislature and his or her accessibility to the views of the Chamber and our 600+ business members and their 40,000 employees.

Based upon the above criteria and thoughtful deliberation among our leadership, ChamPAC has formally endorsed:

Gov. Joe Manchin
House of Delegates 30th District: Doug Skaff (D) and Danny Wells (D)
House of Delegates 31st District: Carrie Webster (D)
