West Virginia veterans rally around the Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate.
Natalie Tennant brought her campaign for that office to Wood County Thursday morning.
Tennant, who was joined by retired National Guard Adjutant General Allen Tackett, spoke out against a vote in Congress eliminating a cost of living adjustment for veterans.
She says her Republican opponent, Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito, supported that measure.
Tennant says she will do better for the state and its military veterans.
"I'm looking forward to doing what's right for West Virginia and not Washington, D.C. I have shown that through reform, results and accountability in the Secretary of State's office, and people know me as someone who stands up for West Virginia, and I will continue to do right for West Virginians," says Tennant.
Tennant and Capito are both candidates for to succeed retiring U.S. Senator Jay Rockefeller.
She says that, as secretary of state, she allowed military personnel serving overseas to vote online.
