CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is campaigning in West Virginia for U.S. Senate and House hopefuls.

The former Massachusetts governor will attend a Charleston fundraiser and Beckley rally Tuesday for Shelley Moore Capito, Alex Mooney and Evan Jenkins.

The Charleston event is closed to the public and press. The Beckley rally at The Tamarack is free and open.

Capito faces Democratic West Virginia Secretary of State Natalie Tennant in a high-profile Senate race.

Jenkins is challenging longtime Democratic Congressman Nick Rahall in the 3rd District. Mooney and Democrat Nick Casey are seeking the 2nd Congressional District seat Capito will vacate.

Romney's former vice presidential nominee, Congressman Paul Ryan, campaigned for Capito in Charleston last month.

Romney won all 55 counties in West Virginia in 2012 against President Barack Obama.
