CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren will campaign for Natalie Tennant in West Virginia next month in a push to keep a Democratic Senate seat.

Warren will accompany Tennant in the Eastern Panhandle on July 14 as she unveils an education agenda.

A Massachusetts Democrat, Warren has been called a progressive star and potential 2016 presidential candidate, but says she won't run.

Tennant is West Virginia's Secretary of State. The Democrat and Republican Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito are competing for retiring Democratic Sen. Jay Rockefeller's seat.

In April, Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota crisscrossed West Virginia.

Heitkamp and Tennant spoke against President Barack Obama's proposed rules limiting carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants.

Capito's campaign criticizes Warren for supporting emission rules.
