Campaign efforts will be in full swing July 14 while two leaders vying for Democratic U.S. Sen. Jay Rockefeller’s seat in the Senate are joined by big names in the Mountain State.

While U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., campaigns with former vice presidential candidate U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., in Charleston, Secretary of State Natalie Tennant will be joined by U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Ma., who also has been a candidate for a higher office.

Warren has been campaigning for president since 2010, before being elected as as a representation in the U.S. Senate for Massachusetts.

She, like Tennant, said Wall Street already has enough senators looking out for their interests in Washington.

“I have watched her side with powerful financial interests over working people,” Warren said of Capito. “West Virginia deserves a Senator like Natalie who will wake up every morning and go to bed every night focused on how to fight for working families.”

Warren will be campaigning with Tennant in the Eastern Panhandle, focusing on education.

Education will be the third in a series of policy papers Tennant is rolling out over the summer, based on priorities she heard from West Virginians during her 55-county tour of the state.

While Capito, in Charleston, will be joined by Ryan to discuss the state’s business practices.

The two will be joined by small business owners in a roundtable discussion about job seekers and individuals from the state’s business community for a conversation about “overcoming President Obama’s job-killing policies and getting West Virginians to work.”
