MARTINSBURG, WV - Natalie Tennant (D-WV) supporters gathered in Martinsburg to meet the Secretary of State who just announced she'll be running for U.S. Senator.

"What's important to the Eastern Panhandle is important to the rest of the state and vice versa," says Tennant. "We cannot forget that, that we are one West Virginia."

After serving five terms in the U.S. Senate, Jay Rockefeller announced he won't be running for re-election.

Tennant is currently in her second term as Secretary of State and says she now wants to bring her knowledge of West Virginia, and her prior experiences to the senate floor.

"I will take my fiscal hawkishness to Washington D.C. because recently I returned $3 million to the taxpayers of West Virginia," she says. "I can show how I can do that by cutting wasteful spending in D.C."

Tennant says if elected, she'll become a voice for the Mountain State. She says, to her, that means taking care of veterans returning home, watching out for senior citizens and their health care costs and being an advocate for small businesses.

"I will help out the small business owners and the business owners in West Virginia and make it easier to do business," she says.

If Tennant wins the seat, one of the candidates she'll have to beat out is Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito who is running on the Republican side. If either of them wins. they'll be the first female U.S. Senator from West Virginia.
