Vice President Pence stopped by Worldwide Equipment Incorporated Wednesday afternoon to talk to workers about the need for economic progress, tax reform and the revival of the coal industry. He said West Virginians set an example for the nation of how to face adversity.

That last reference was an obvious nod to the invitation-only event's venue - a Worldwide Equipment garage bedecked with an American flag backdrop for the speakers, surrounded by a shiny array of big-rig cabs.

He remarked, "The war on coal was not fake news". "If you think $1,000 is crumbs, you live in a different world than I live in". "That may be the best we can hope for", Thune said. Last year's conference was in Philadelphia.

Saccone is facing Democrat Conor Lamb, a 33-year-old former federal prosecutor and ex-Marine who reported entering 2018 with more than twice the cash in his campaign account as Saccone, $412,000 to $200,000.

"North Korea is isolated as never before", Pence said. "Folks, Joe's just going to keep voting against West Virginia", Pence said.

President Trump is expected to arrive at The Greenbrier tomorrow to speak at that retreat as well.


"Growth is back. Confidence is back and, in a very real way, America is back", he said.

Dotson is confident these accomplishments are a result of the recently-passed tax reform plan.

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) has often been praised for his bipartisanship on Capitol Hill.

"People of the Mountain State, you deserve to know, when it came to cutting your taxes, voted "no, '" said." voted "no" to give working families more of your hard-earned money. voted 'no" on tax cuts for job creators. "When the time came to repeal and replace the disaster of Obamacare, Joe voted 'no.' When we empowered West Virginia to defund Planned Parenthood, Joe voted 'no.' And when it comes to that wall that we're gonna build on the southern border, Joe said, quote, 'Well, I'm not voting for the wall either'". Pence assured the crowd coal country won't be forgotten under this administration.

"This is what we care about", she said.

The speech came after a day of partisan attacks from Pence, who appeared at a truck dealership in White Sulphur Springs, about three miles from the exclusive resort hosting the retreat.

Rainelle Mayor Andrea Pendleton was invited by Senator Capito to attend Wednesday's speech.
