Coal is also the subject for the Chamber's commercial backing Rep. Shelley Moore Capito, the seven-term lawmaker who is considered a favorite to capture the Senate seat of retiring Democratic Sen. Jay Rockefeller.
Capito, according to the Chamber, is "fighting back against the Obama administration's war on coal." The spot, which begins airing Thursday, describes her as a strong conservative who will "stand up for all of West Virginia. She's one of us."
President Barack Obama's health care law is the main topic in the Chamber's ad for Evan Jenkins, the Democrat-turned-Republican state lawmaker who is challenging 19-term Democratic Rep. Nick J. Rahall in the expansive 3rd Congressional District in southern West Virginia.
"Evan knows Obamacare's a mess. Jobs at risk. Health care premiums rising," says the commercial. "West Virginia can't afford Obamacare. It's time for change."
The spot calls Jenkins "West Virginia strong."
