Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- The West Virginia Republican Party is planning its first state summit.

State GOP Chairman Doug McKinney said Saturday's summit in Charleston will include grassroots workshops, panels featuring current and former West Virginia politicians and a presidential straw poll.

The summit is intended to show West Virginians that republicans are the right side of such issues as cap and trade and judicial reform.

McKinney says it will also help educate young people about what the GOP can do for them.

Democratic voters in West Virginia now outnumber republicans by nearly 2-to-1.
