Gas and Oil Association of WV, Inc. announces support for Representative David McKinley (R – WV) in the upcoming primary election for West Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District

CHARLESTON, WV, April 28, 2022 – To continue his tenure serving the citizens of West Virginia in our nation’s capital, the Gas and Oil Association of West Virginia (GO-WV) today announced the endorsement of Congressman David McKinley for his reelection bid in the state’s 2nd Congressional District, both announced jointly today.

“We’re proud to support Representative McKinley, a steadfast supporter of the oil and natural gas industry since first entering office in 2011, because he’s a businessman – not a politician – and understands the complexity of the industry and its dedication to continuous improvement from a technological, operational, and environmental perspective,” GO-WV Executive Director Charlie Burd said.

“A true and long-time friend, Representative McKinley sees value in using domestic energy to grow our state and provide jobs for hard-working West Virginians,” Burd continued. “We look forward to having David return to Washington and continue advocating for the Mountain State.”

GO-WV’s endorsement follows the support of other pro-business groups, including the West Virginia Business & Industry Council, the West Virginia Manufacturers Association and the West Virginia Chamber.

“A strong America depends on West Virginia energy. Our state has played a leading role in helping America become not only energy independent but a net exporter of energy across the world,” Congressman McKinley stated in response to this endorsement.

“West Virginia has a proud tradition of helping to fuel America’s economic might. I will continue to stand up for the hard-working men and women of West Virginia’s oil and natural gas industry and fight against the Biden Administration’s assault on American energy,” McKinley continued.

“It is an honor to receive the endorsement of the Gas and Oil Association of West Virginia.”
