Boehner to Rally With U.S. House Candidate Mooney


  U.S. House Speaker John Boehner is coming to West Virginia to participate in a get-out-the-vote rally with Republican House candidate Alex Mooney.

Mooney’s campaign says the one-hour rally will be held at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday at Paddy’s Irish Pub in Charles Town.

National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Greg Walden also is scheduled to speak at the rally.

Mooney faces former state Democratic Party Chairman Nick Casey in the race to fill Rep. Shelley Moore Capito’s seat in the 2nd Congressional District. Capito is running for the U.S. Senate.

Mooney is a former GOP chairman and Maryland lawmaker who moved to West Virginia last year.
