Detailed Bio (optional):
Jack Doyle was born on September 12, 1960 in Huntington, West Virginia. His father a mailman, his mom a schoolteacher, Jack learned the importance of hard work at a young age. After graduating high school, Jack worked several blue collar jobs before he ran for city council. HIs tenure as city councilman saw him lead the fight against high property taxes and the fight for collective bargaining. Jack served on the city council until 1990, when he then decided to run for state representative, as a Democrat. By the late 90s, the leftward swing of the Democratic Party increasingly made Jack uncomfortable and he became an Independent after the Bill Clinton impeachment hearings. The West Virginia Republican Party had tried to get him to join their ranks for nearly 5 years, and in 2006, he finally became a Republican, and was elected State Senator. And about 10 years later, he was approached by the NRCC to run for the U.S. Senate, easily defeating Democrat Nick Rahall. As U.S. Senator, Doyle has an unorthdox voting record. He combines social conservative views with populist economic issues such as trade, private sector unions, and a tough stance against illegal immigration. "I didn't leave the Democratic Party, the Democratic Party left me."
