    During the debates, Hillary Clinton somewhat famously told that nation, ďweíre going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.Ē Do you suppose the people in West Virginia noticed? Even if they missed the live coverage of the event, theyíve been reminded of it plenty of times since then, and only a few days before the primary on Tuesday the powerful West Virginia Coal Association has jumped in with an endorsement of her opponent.

    The West Virginia Coal Association is putting its weight behind Donald Trump for president. Members of the group, which represents companies in coal mining and related industries, voted Thursday to endorse the presumptive Republican nominee, days before West Virginiaís presidential primary. ďTrump has said he will reverse the Democratic regulatory assault that has cost the coal industry more than 40 percent of our production and jobs since 2008,Ē Bill Raney, the groupís president, said in a statement. ďIn contrast, Hillary Clintonís proposals essentially double-down on the job killing Obama policies,Ē he said. ďWest Virginia canít afford that and neither can...

    Well, so much for suspense. The networks called Indiana for Donald Trump about five seconds after the polls closed, and within two hours Ted Cruz announced he was suspending his campaign. Trump is winning a majority of the vote and will likely win all 57 delegates. Even if a few delegates stray back across the line, this win clinched the nomination for Trump. He will now have well over 1,000 bound delegates, which is less than 200 from what he needs to make it a lock. And that's without the unbound delegates he definitely has in Pennsylvania and is sure...

    PPP's new West Virginia poll finds it's likely to just keep Donald Trump's recent streak of dominant victories right on going. Trump leads in the state with 61% to 22% for Ted Cruz and 14% for John Kasich. Trump, with a 67/24 favorability rating, is the only candidate GOP voters in the state even like. Both Kasich (32/50) and Cruz (32/53) come in with negative favorability ratings. Adding Carly Fiorina to the ticket has done little to help Cruz. Only 12% of voters say picking her as his running mate makes them more likely to vote for Cruz, compared to...

    West Virginia lawmakers have voted to override Governor Earl Ray Tomblinís veto of a bill banning dilation & evacuation-method abortions, also known as dismemberment abortions, for pulling a preborn baby apart inside the womb. SB 10 enjoyed large bipartisan majorities in its override votes, which were 25-9 in the state Senate and 85-15 in the state House. In West Virginia, a second simple-majority vote suffices to override a veto. The override votes came less than 24 hours after Tomblin rejected the bill. As reported previously by Live Action news, the ban would punish abortionists who violate it with the loss...

    The West Virginia legislature did not waste any time in overriding Governor Tomblin's veto of HB 4145, also known as "Constitutional carry" or permitless carry. Governor Tomblin vetoed a similar bill in 2015, but the veto occurred after the legislature had adjourned, making a veto override difficult. This year, the Constitutional carry bill was passed early enough for the legislature to vote on a veto override if necessary. Governor Tomblin received the Constitutional carry bill on 26 February. He waited to the last possible day to veto it, 3 March. The House of Delegates overrode his veto on 4 March,...

The hypocrisy comes from the praises she heaped upon the late Sen. Robert Bryd ó a KKK participant and recruiter.
