President Donald Trump's campaign has announced support for Republican Carol Miller in West Virginia's 3rd Congressional District race.

The Trump Campaign said in a statement this week that Miller is "pro-coal, pro-Second Amendment, and pro-Trump" and encouraged people to vote for her.

Miller is the majority whip in the state House of Delegates. Her opponent is Democratic state Sen. Richard Ojeda

The 3rd District, whose voters strongly backed President Donald Trump in 2016, is being vacated by Republican Rep. Evan Jenkins, who ran for U.S. Senate and lost in the May primary.
