West Virginia's Senator Shelley Moore Capito explains her vote to sustain the president's decision to declare a national emergency (updated)

For Capito, not only is consistency obviously overrated, so is a willingness to stand up for what you believe

A follow-up on reactions to Trump’s executive order

What did West Virginia's congressional delegation and the Wheeling Intelligencer have to say about Trump's order?

Senator Capito makes some news

She'll be meeting with the President on funding for his border wall and co-leading the efforts to secure the necessary funding

Compared to our other West Virginia senator, Joe Manchin, Shelley Moore Capito seldom makes news. I think she likes to keep a low profile and I've noted on a couple of occasions that she looks uncomfortable with some of the more front-and-center, purely-political responsibilities of her office.
