Allen Whitt, the long-time president of the West Virginia Family Policy Council, has announced that he will be challenging U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito in the May 2020 Republican primary election.
Whitt decided to make the announcement after Capito came out in favor of gun control in the form of red flag laws, which have already resulted in many heinous abuses occurring across the country.
“I’m running to bring West Virginia values to Washington,” Whitt said in a statement announcing his primary bid. “As a Republican, I campaigned for Shelley Moore Capito in 2014, but conservatives have been let down too many times by her votes and her statements. Her most recent comments on supporting red flag laws simply don’t represent the views of the majority of West Virginians.”
He also stated: “After talking with possible candidates for more than two years, I came to the conclusion that I would be the best individual to challenge the senator for those people who are unhappy with her conservative record.”
Whitt is already receiving negative coverage from the fake news media, which notes the Family Policy Council’s opposition to abortion, same-sex marriage and the LGBT agenda.
“The organization refers to itself as “the leading conservative policy group championing social issues.” They oppose abortion rights and same-sex marriage, and advocate for religious freedom,” West Virginia Public Broadcasting wrote about Whitt’s organization.
“The group’s website also says they occasionally partner with the Family Research Council, which the Southern Poverty Law Center has designated as a hate group,” they added.
