White Sulphur Springs, W.Va. – Gov. Jim Justice, a lifelong West Virginian, successful businessman, high school basketball coach, and family man, announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate today.
“I’m officially announcing my candidacy for United States Senate. I’m a patriot and a conservative, and I firmly believe America is the greatest country on Earth and we’re all blessed to live here. If the great people of West Virginia elect me, I will work every day to put America and West Virginia first,” said Governor Justice.
Surrounded by his family and hundreds of supporters, Justice said that as U.S. Senator, he would work to reverse the Biden Administration’s policies that are hurting West Virginia families, including record high inflation, securing the Southern Border, and putting America back on a path to energy independence with West Virginia coal, natural gas, and oil.
“President Biden and the liberals have completely caved to foreign nationals,” continued Justice. “We need to be less dependent on China and other foreign adversaries for energy, goods, and technology. We need to put America First.”
Gov. Justice highlighted record achievements as governor, including historic budget surpluses, the largest personal income tax cut in state history, and record job creation and economic growth. In addition, he affirmed his commitment to conservative, traditional values with a commitment to protecting life and, as an outdoorsman, an unwavering pledge to protect the Second Amendment. Finally, he vowed to protect West Virginia kids by taking on the woke mob and career liberal D.C. politicians daily.
“It would be my absolute highest honor to continue serving West Virginians in the United States Senate. I will work every day to make all of you proud,” concluded Justice.
