Capito visits Huntington to hear from small businesses

Aug. 07, 2013 @ 06:45 AM

HUNTINGTON -- In an effort to learn what's on the minds of local business people, U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., made rounds Tuesday, visiting ICL-IPAmerica in Gallipolis Ferry, State Electric Supply Co. in Huntington and with members of the Huntington Regional Chamber of Commerce Executive Committee.

"We're on recess, and I'm touring businesses and talking about jobs, the economy and health care and whatever they (want to discuss)," said Capito, who represents West Virginia's 2nd Congressional District.

The goal of the tours was to learn what tools they need to help their businesses grow and provide jobs, her office said.

Capito is running for the U.S. Senate seat occupied by Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va. Rockefeller is not running for re-election in 2014.
