McKinley Brings House GOP Leader Boehner To Oliverio'S Backyard For Fundraiser
 
By Huntingtonnews.net Staff
 
In a symbol of what could be a feisty General Election campaign for the First Congressional District seat currently held by outgoing Democratic Congressman Alan Mollohan, Republican nominee David McKinley is bringing a top gun to a Morgantown fundraiser Saturday, June 26th. Morgantown is the hometown of McKinley's Democratic opponent, State Senator Mike Oliverio.
 
House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) will be the keynote speaker on behalf of McKinley for a general reception beginning at 6:00 p.m. at Waterfront Place. Tickets are $100 each and are available by calling McKinley headquarters at: (304) 233-6304.
 
"The fact that a national leader as sought after as Congressman Boehner is making one of his first stops of the General Election campaign here in our district says a lot about him--and about our chances this November," said McKinley. "Most pundits agree now that John Boehner has a great chance of becoming the next Speaker of the House of Representatives, replacing the liberal Nancy Pelosi, and I want to help vote him in."
 
"This event gives everyone who attends a chance to interact with the next Speaker, and, with their help, the next Congressman from our First District," said McKinley. "Heaven knows we need a real, conservative change in direction during this recession. And we just can't get that from Mike Oliverio. He would vote for Pelosi. He's said as much already."
 
McKinley is well-known in statewide business and political circles. McKinley is a former State Republican Party Chairman and served seven terms as a legislator from Ohio County. He has been very active in his local church over the years, serving on a variety of church boards.
 
Throughout his public life, he has stood up for the rights of the unborn, small business owners, gun owners, taxpayers, and students. A strong advocate of smaller government, McKinley was known for his ability as a state legislator to root out wasteful government spending and to achieve consensus on important bills with both Republicans and Democrats.
 
McKinley is a supporter of both new industries as well as the state's core traditional industries like coal. He has vowed, if elected, that West Virginia's coal industry will have in him an advocate against what he sees as the excesses of the Obama Administration's environmental policies.
 
Twice now, McKinley has been recognized by West Virginia Executive Magazine as one of the most influential citizens across the Mountain State.
 
McKinley manages McKinley and Associates, a successful architectural engineering company in Wheeling. His business track record is unique, in that he has never had to lay off a single employee at McKinley and Associates over thirty years.
 
His wife, Mary, is a nationally recognized nursing consultant. They have four children and five grandchildren. The McKinleys are avid WVU football fans, having been season ticket holders for the past 25 years.
