Call it the full Grassley.
West Virginia Democratic Senate candidate Natalie Tennant is planning to campaign in all of the Mountain State’s 55 counties before Election Day.
It's a move that other politicians have undertaken in the past to generate attention and connect with all the state's corners. Most notably, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) makes an annual pilgrimage to the state's 99 counties.
In a statement, Tennant contrasted what she said was her own focus on West Virginia needs with Rep. Shelley Moore Capito’s (R-W.Va.) time spent in Washington. Capito is the expected GOP nominee for the seat left open by Sen. Jay Rockefeller’s (D-W.Va.) retirement.
"I'm running to put West Virginia first," Tennant said. "That's why I'm taking my campaign directly to the people of West Virginia to make their voices heard."
