Allen Whitt, the long-time president of the West Virginia Family Policy Council, has announced that he will be challenging U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito in the May 2020 Republican primary election.
“I’m running to bring West Virginia values to Washington,” Whitt said in a statement announcing his primary bid. “As a Republican, I campaigned for Shelley Moore Capito in 2014, but conservatives have been let down too many times by her votes and her statements. Her most recent comments on supporting red flag laws simply don’t represent the views of the majority of West Virginians.”
He also stated: “After talking with possible candidates for more than two years, I came to the conclusion that I would be the best individual to challenge the senator for those people who are unhappy with her conservative record.”
Whitt is already receiving negative coverage from the fake news media, which notes the Family Policy Council’s opposition to abortion, same-sex marriage and the LGBT agenda.
“The organization refers to itself as “the leading conservative policy group championing social issues.” They oppose abortion rights and same-sex marriage, and advocate for religious freedom,” West Virginia Public Broadcasting wrote about Whitt’s organization.
“The group’s website also says they occasionally partner with the Family Research Council, which the Southern Poverty Law Center has designated as a hate group,” they added.
The disgraced SPLC has been maligning the Family Research Council and other Christian groups for years, classifying them alongside the Ku Klux Klan and Neo-Nazis as hate organizations:
The FRC often makes false claims about the LGBT community based on discredited research and junk science. The intention is to denigrate LGBT people as the organization battles against same-sex marriage, hate crime laws, anti-bullying programs and the repeal of the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy.
To make the case that the LGBT community is a threat to American society, the FRC employs a number of “policy experts” whose “research” has allowed the FRC to be extremely active politically in shaping public debate. Its research fellows and leaders often testify before Congress and appear in the mainstream media. It also works at the grassroots level, conducting outreach to pastors in an effort to “transform the culture.”
Regardless of the left-wing critics, Whitt will maintain his conservative Christian principles while opposing Capito in the U.S. Senate primary election next year.
“That lower court ruling must be overturned or our country and our Constitution are lost. Gender Dysphoria, a mental health diagnosis, must not be elevated to a civil right,” Whitt said on Tuesday outside of the U.S. Supreme Court. They were hearing a case deciding whether or not the 1964 Civil Rights Act pertains to LGBTQ individuals.
The Republican establishment of West Virginia – including West Virginia Republican Party Chairwoman Melody Potter – is already rallying the troops behind Capito.
“She has been our leader in Washington standing up for our conservative West Virginia values. She has also been a strong supporter of President Donald Trump and his agenda to secure our border, grow our economy and put America first,” Potter said in a press release.
“Senator Capito is working hard doing the job West Virginians elected her to do. She is focused on providing President Trump the resources he needs to secure our border and build the wall,” said Kent Gates, a Capito campaign spokesman. “She has also voted for all 152 of President Trump’s judicial nominations and two Supreme Court Justices.”
Whitt hopes to coalesce grassroots conservatives throughout his state behind his primary challenge so the RINO can be removed.
“West Virginia is far more conservative than our only Republican senator, and we deserve better,” Whitt said.

House Republicans Hoping to Get Americans Back to Work By End of April
It’s a aspiration, not a plan.
House Republicans are considering plans that would help Americans get back to work by the end of the month. Kevin Brady of Texas told reporters on a conference call that the caucus is preparing preliminary plans that phase the workforce back in at the end of April.
“Our focus is on locking down the virus while we’re taking the steps now to prepare to reopen the economy by the end of the month if the virus permits.”
Brady was careful to qualify that there’s no guarantee the public health situation in the United States would allow such a development.
“I think we should all expect the jobs, the unemployment in the GDP numbers to feel brutal over the short term. It’s because they are. This economy is taking hits like we’ve not seen in most of our lifetimes. But it is just a short-term hit.”
Initial social distancing guidelines set forth by the White House in conjunction with the CDC were extended from two weeks to April 30th earlier in the week, suggesting the executive branch may be cautiously looking towards the end of April to begin phasing out the unprecedented disruptions to everyday American life.
It is worth noting that an early cease to social distancing and commonsense measures to deter the spread of the Chinese coronavirus could prove to be even more harmful than the negative impacts to the economy since the beginning of the virus-related recession. This can’t be rushed. But the consequences of the economic damage are real, and all Americans should look to get everyday economic life up and running against as soon as possible.
