West Virginia native and coal miner’s daughter, Paula Jean Swearengin, has pledged a fight for the rights of all people in West Virginia. Working class and working against corruption at the state and national level, Paula is running for the U.S. Senate, alongside many others who see the needs of the many and hope to be the voice of those left behind. Paula, who speaks of universal heath care, water rights as human rights, the need for education as an avenue to prosperity, has been fighting for over ten years to forward a progressive movement challenging status quo politics and corruption not only in West Virginia, but throughout the U.S. As Paula states, “West Virginia is rising, and the whole nation needs to too.” She adds an impassioned, “Don’t mess with our young!” as the women’s rally cry for a grassroots movement that is quickly gaining ground. Paula believes that, “In the wealthiest nation in the world, nobody should have to beg for clean water, clean air and prosperity.” Paula is taking on the energy industry backed Democrat Joe Manchin on May 8, 2018.
