AFP-WV Releases Episode 2 of “Mountaineer Minute” Video Series

Sep 4, 2018 by AFP

CHARLESTON, W.Va.—Americans for Prosperity-West Virginia (AFP-WV) today released the second episode of “Mountaineer Minute,” part of its new video series focused on keeping West Virginians up-to-date on policy issues impacting the Mountain State.

With Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings beginning in Congress today, this episode focuses on President Trump’s eminently qualified nominee for the United States Supreme Court. It features AFP-WV State Director Jason Huffman and Former State Senate General Counsel and Attorney Richie Heath, discussing the importance of Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation.



“Throughout his career on the bench, Judge Kavanaugh has been a steadfast defender of the Constitution and proven he will interpret the law as written, not legislate from the bench. As the confirmation hearings begin this week, we’re confident that Mountaineers will be left with no doubt that Judge Kavanaugh has the temperament, philosophy, and qualifications to serve on our nation’s highest court,” said AFP-WV State Director Jason Huffman. “Please join us in urging Senator Manchin to break with his party’s leadership, reject the political obstruction, and do what’s best for West Virginia by confirming well-qualified jurist Judge Kavanaugh.”


Americans for Prosperity announced the launch of its mail and digital campaign ahead of the Kavanaugh hearings. Last week, West Virginians received mailers highlighting Judge Kavanaugh’s demonstrated commitment to defending the constitution. A second piece will hit mailboxes in the Mountain State this week.
