    Bennett on Obamacare

    Beau Bennett (Senate Multi) U.S. Senate Candidate Beau Bennett issued the following statement on Obamacare: Let's be honest folks. The Affordable Care Act is not perfect. But, unlike my opponent, I do not support repeal. Repeal would be damaging to millions of Americans and their families. Instead of throwing the baby out with the bath water, we need to come up with bipartsian fixes to the Affordable Care Act. Fact is, Americans deserve a first-rate health Care system, and I think that's something we can all agree on. But it would be irresponsible to throw millions of people off their plans and not have s stable replacement. View full PR

    Hickenbottom takes questions in Huntington, WV

    Mr. Hickenbottom, What is your position on trade?
  5. Well, campaign season has officially begun folks. Once again, hollow attacks on my gun views have been leveled at me. It's time to set the record straight once and for all. My record on guns speaks for itself. As Governor of West Virginia, I opposed gun control when it was being pushed by people on both sides. Liberal Republicans used to exist, believe it or not. The Right to Bear Arms shall not be infringed. That's a belief, like all of my constitutionalist beliefs, that will never change. I'd also like to address my endorsement from Chairwoman Vanderfeet. Her job is win elections. She knows I March to my own drummer and that I represent West Virginia values. The fact is: A democratic chairperson endorsing a democratic Candidate is NOT newsworthy. I would not attack Mr. Hickenbottom for recieving an endorsement from Speaker Faulhammer, nor would I imply he agrees with everything that comes from the Speaker's mouth. Us West Virginians don't take well to following in lockstep with anyone, even our friends and colleagues.

  7. U.S. Senate Candidate Beau Bennett issued the following statement on infrastructure and job creation: I believe that rebuilding America and investing in the next generation of infrastructure is not a Democratic ideal or a Republican ideal, it’s an American ideal. By choosing to focus on our needs here at home – on roads, bridges, airports, pipelines and broadband in every state – we will not only create jobs, but we will strengthen the very economic foundation of this nation that our people and our businesses rely on to thrive. I also recognizes the importance of delivering affordable, reliable broadband access to every corner of West Virginia. This digital divide prevents students from learning at home and makes it harder for our small businesses to grow and create jobs. I'm focused on closing the digital divide to ensure every West Virginian has access to the technological resources they need to succeed in a 21st century economy. I have hosted more than 20 job fairs across the state with thousands of West Virginians in attendance to help link West Virginians looking for employment with jobs. And I how hard the people of the Mountain State work and that given the opportunity, nobody works harder than a West Virginian. Putting West Virginia and the United States of America first is my number one priority and the strain of globalization going through both parties must come to an end. I will see to that when I'm elected to the Senate.

    Bennett travels to Charleston

    I emphasize to them that my West Virginia values will follow me into the Senate, even if it makes me clash with my party. I will be an independent voice and will work across party lines. My opponent, Mr. Hickenbottom, is a good man. He served as Governor of West Virginia after my two terms were up and he managed the state competently. But, I believe that a change in Washington is needed. I will be an advocate for working people, for the poor, for those who have no voice in the corridor of power. That's something that is sorely needed in a legislative body that too often favors their donors and their UnAmerican goals. Unrestricted free trade and enless illegal immigration being the most prominent of these immoral policies. And I will vote to end these practices if I'm elected to the U.S. Senate.
  10. A tall man wearing a flannel vest and blue jeans approaches you. Mr. Rambor, I'm Dale Turner, I run the civic center here in Dallas. I'm what folks around here call a "Yellow Dog Democrat". I've never voted Republican in my life, they are for the rich and powerful. Democrats are for the working man. That's what Grandpa told me and my Dad after him. Unfortunately, these days, Democrats like me aren't seen in the party anymore. It's gotten more urban, more focused on innovation and giving breaks to the knowledge industry. Democrats all around me are voting Republican. I tell them, Mark Rambor is good people. I hope they listen to me. My question for you is: Can the Democrats win over these blue collar workers and religious voters? If so, how do you wish to go about doing this?
  11. U.S. Senate Candidate Beau Bennett travels to Charleston to meet with West Virginia Democratic Party and answer questions they have on their mind.
  12. Mr. Ward, We're seeing a resurgence of Southern Democrats this election cycle. What makes this crop of Dixiecrats different than their predecessors?

    @BeauBennett

    The Chairwoman's job is to win elections. A big tent party is how you do this.

    @BeauBennett

    Why does the Speaker think that a DEMOCRATIC leader endorsing a DEMOCRATIC candidate is so noteworthy?
  15. Friends, I'm very disappointed in the slander leveled at me from the Speaker of the House. I'm as pro-gun as you get, and the Speaker knows this. We spoke at the same NRA rally and he knows my values as a West VIRGINIA Democrat. (That's the correct spelling by the way, Mr. Speaker.) This is politics, pure and simple. I oppose gun control measures and I'm not a rubber stamp for my party. As Governor of West Virginia I always supported gun rights and my position will not change when I'm elected to the U.S. Senate. And you can take that to the bank.
