A coal miner’s daughter and granddaughter, Paula Jean Swearengin has been fighting for a better West Virginia and our West Virginia values for decades. In 2018, she took on an entrenched incumbent U.S. Senator in a Democratic Primary and received the highest number of primary votes against an incumbent U.S. Senator in West Virginia in 75 years.
Now that Paula Jean has won the primary to become the Democratic nominee, she will be taking on Republican Senator Shelley Moore Capito to restore economic opportunity for our entire Appalachian community, make Medicare for All a reality and bring our progressive values to the U.S. Senate.
