CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WOWK) The West Virginia Senate will consider a resolution drafted and introduced by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles S. Trump, IV, R-Morgan, which reminds the citizens of Frederick County, Virginia, that Frederick County, Va. has a standing invitation to become part of the State of West Virginia.
Even though it has been more than 150 years, I wanted to make sure that the people of Frederick County know that our affection for them remains strong, and our desire for Frederick County to be reunited with the West Virginia counties to which she gave birth has not diminished, Senator Trump said.
According to the resolution, most of the territory that is now within the West Virginia counties of Jefferson, Berkeley, Morgan, Hampshire, Mineral, Hardy, and Grant was once part of Frederick County. Most of what was originally Hampshire County came from part of Frederick County in 1754. Berkeley County was created from Northern Frederick County in 1772.
In addition to the historical connections between Frederick County and the seven counties of our Eastern Panhandle, there are strong bonds and ties of every kind among the citizens family, business, education, culture, and commerce. We share common values, Senator Trump said. Frederick Countys residents have so much in common with West Virginia that our separation has never made sense. The citizens of Frederick County are champions of freedom and personal liberty, and they would be welcomed with open arms by the citizens of the Mountain State.

Has anybody consulted the Wonderful Whites of West Virginia about this? ;-)
About now would be thinking more Va counties would be wanting W.Va to claim them.
If they were serious they’d invite every county west of I-81, at least.
Wait until NC gets involved..
But I've got to give a shout out to Hollywood. All those "Wrong Turn" horror movies keep yankees out of West Virginia.
Who knows maybe those counties will start begging to enter?
There could be nothing left of the Old Dominion bur NOVA, Norfolk and Richmond.
If Lee County went for it I’d petition my Va reps to too.
Wait until NC gets woke on this. VA could get disassembled quickly.
Good idea and west of I-77 south of Wytheville. Might could even sneak in Floyd County if they were interested.
States problems are cities... they’re 99% liberal shxtholes that are run by people who don’t ave a clue how Americans live.
The WILD and wonderful Whites.
Oh yeah...forgot that part..
A one-family crime wave.
Unfortunately, the way things are going in North Carolina, there might be a lot of Carolinians who want to join West Virginia too.
“All those ‘Wrong Turn’ horror movies keep yankees out of West Virginia.”
LOL! When we travel from Knoxville to Buffalo our route takes us through WV. It is the most beautiful part of our trip! The first time we did it we were on the Robert Byrd Hwy., and there were “Sheetz” stores all along the way. It struck us funny.
I think most of them have moved out of Logan & Mingo counties.
Most cesspool leftist run states need to be divided.
