OAK HILL -- Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito made a stop on her West Virginia work tour in Oak Hill to meet with local mining companies and offer them some piece of mind.

Capito made it her point to speak with workers to reassure workers that coal is the driving factor for the mountain state and especially here in Fayette County.

Capito told Newswatch that “Fayette County is a very important to the coal industry there's a lot of families that work and have worked for generations in coal mining and it powers the nation and the president and his supporters just are picking us to lose our jobs and we need to fight that.”

The West Virginia works tour continues next week in Morgantown.
