Barack Obama’s anti-coal policies are killing off thousands of jobs in West Virginia and raising energy prices across the country.
Charleston Daily Mail reported:
The campaign chairman for Democratic Senate nominee Natalie Tennant recently said Tennant agrees with President Barack Obama “on most of his policies.”
Maj. Gen. Allen Tackett, the retired head of the West Virginia National Guard, misspoke when he made the statement Saturday in Logan before a Democratic campaign event, Tennant campaign spokeswoman Jenny Donohue said.
“The general misspoke. Natalie does not support the majority of the president’s policies,” Donohue said Monday evening.
“The only thing that influences Natalie Tennant’s policies is what’s right for the people of West Virginia. She’ll stand up to the president when he’s wrong, and she’ll work with anyone who’s willing to do what’s right for West Virginia.”
A tracker, a person paid to follow political candidates and capture comments on tape, filmed Tackett making the statement. The video was posted to YouTube Monday.
