WEST VIRGINIA - This time next year, voters in the Mountain State will have to vote in a new U.S. Representative.
Nick Casey is running for the 2nd Congressional District seat and stopped by our studio Tuesday afternoon.
Casey says he's running for congress as a problem-solver, and says his focuses are on West Viginia's energy, infrastructure and the jobs they generate.
"We are an energy center that has a real opportunity to not just supply West Virginia, but to supply a great portion of the east coast," says Casey. "That opportunity is something that I'm really interested in bringing to fruition."
He says major road projects in the state, like Corridor H and Route 9, can create more jobs and be finished in a timely manner.
Casey has a law and accounting background.
