Moore for West Virginia

In his video message, Capito highlighted his passion for what makes West Virginia great and outlined his positive, conservative vision for the state’s future. As Governor, his administration would:

  • Protect the God-given rights West Virginians cherish;
  • Reduce taxes on hardworking West Virginia families;
  • Incentivize investment in West Virginia’s natural resources;
  • Improve student achievement in West Virginia schools; and,
  • Empower entrepreneurs and innovators to make West Virginia a leader in America’s 21st century economy.

Moore Capito is uniquely qualified to lead West Virginia forward. In 2016, voters first elected Capito to the West Virginia House of Delegates and overwhelmingly reelected him three more times. In 2020, as the leader of the West Virginia Republican Legislative Committee, Moore architected the first Republican supermajority in our state’s modern history.

Capito is a leader in promoting entrepreneurship and innovation in West Virginia. He authored job retraining legislation that allows high school graduates and those recovering from substance abuse increased access to job training skills for next generation jobs. And, as Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Capito is at the center of passing legislation that protects West Virginia’s values.

A devoted father to two young children, Capito earned his BA from Duke University and his law degree from Washington and Lee University School of Law.
