WSAZ reports the story:

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- The winner of West Virginia's Democratic primary for president will visit Charleston this Friday to endorse Anne Barth for Congress.

United States Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY) will host a rally for Barth's campaign beginning at 1pm at the University of Charleston.

Excellent news. Click on the link for more details. The primary showed how popular Hillary Clinton is in this state.

For weeks I'd been urging her to come to West Virginia to campaign for Barack Obama. I can't tell you how happy I am she's coming here to endorse Anne Barth.

Maybe Shelley Moore Capito should bring her close friend Dick Cheney to campaign for her like she did in the past. Or George Bush. They're so tight.


Here's Anne Barth helped Morgan County Democrats kick off the grand opening of their county HQ.

The Charleston Gazette makes the right pick:

Anne Barth is a breath of fresh air amid stagnant West Virginia politics. She's intelligent, informed, conscientious - and free from any hint of taint.

She spent 21 years as an aide to Sen. Robert C. Byrd, learning both West Virginia needs and crucial national issues. She shares the courageous opposition that Byrd voiced against President Bush's unnecessary Iraq war, even before it began. She says America was "misled" into the tragedy.

She supports universal medical insurance to cover all Americans, and opposes tax giveaways to U.S. corporations that send American jobs overseas.

Barth's father was a United Methodist minister, and she grew up in parsonages around the Mountain State. She earned bachelor's and master's degrees from West Virginia University. She once was executive director of the state Democratic Party. Her husband is Charleston lawyer Nick Barth, and their two daughters attend WVU.

In contrast, her Republican opponent in the Nov. 4 election has backed the Bush-Cheney agenda that has harmed America painfully and sent the national debt to monstrous heights. Rep. Shelley Capito, R-W.Va., still defends her vote to plunge into the Iraq war, even after all evidence shows that the invasion was based on phony grounds.

In 2000 and 2004, West Virginia was a "red" state supporting Bush, Cheney and Capito. But it will be a shame if the GOP ticket prevails again, after eight years of damage in Washington. It's time for a fresh start.

We urge voters of the 2nd Congressional District - a misshapen belt stretching all the way from Point Pleasant to the tip of the Eastern Panhandle - to choose Barth and bring much-needed change to Washington. We endorse her wholeheartedly.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
