Republicans Take Helm In Legislature
"Its time for prosperity, West Virginia." 
- Conrad Lucas, WV Republican Party Chairman 

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Republican legislators today voted Delegate Tim Armstead and Senator Bill Cole to lead their caucuses, taking control of the legislative branch of state government for the first time since 1931.
"It's truly a bright new day for this great state. We have ached for jobs and a place where future generations can stay and prosper," said West Virginia Republican Party Chairman Conrad Lucas. "Putting the keys to our legislature in conservative hands today is another step toward repairing eight decades of mismanagement in our beautiful homeland."

Historic wins last November give the Republicans a 64-36 margin in the House, and an 18-16 margin in the State Senate. Both would represent veto-proof majorities along party lines for the new conservative agenda.

"Ending Joe Manchin's Cap-and-Trade bill to free our coal mines and power plants and lower energy costs for hard working West Virginians is a top priority," said Lucas. "Further, look to our new legislature to produce legal reforms to make our courts more fair. Also on the agenda will be education reform and massive audits of wasteful spending." 

"We have a mandate to grow jobs, this economy and even our population again," added Lucas. From protecting the unborn to making sure our children can have working futures here, we have much to do for this state. We appreciate the trust that voters have put in our team, from Senator Shelley Moore Capito and the all three Congressmen through to our Legislators and County Governments. We will keep our word. Its time for prosperity, West Virginia."
