Roll Call staff writer Abby Livingston will moderate a 1st and 2nd district candidate forum in West Virginia on Friday, August 29. Republican Rep. David B. McKinley and Democratic state auditor Glen Gainer III in the 1st district and former Maryland GOP chairman Alex Mooney and West Virginia Democratic chairman Nick Casey vying for the 2nd district will discuss current state issues.
“I couldn’t be more thrilled to have a front-row seat to West Virginia politics,” Livingston said in a Roll Call press release. “The Mountain State is the center of the political world this midterm cycle.”
Prior to joining Roll Call, Livingston was a producer for CNN’s “John King, USA” and writer for CNN’s Political Ticker. Possibly the biggest fan of Bruce Springsteen and the Texas Longhorns, Livingston regularly reps The Bad News Babes in the Congressional Women’s Softball game and was named MVP for the press team in June.
The forum is sponsored by the West Virginia Chamber of Commerce and will take place during the West Virginia Chamber of Commerce Annual Meeting and Business Summit in Sulphur Springs, WV at 9:30am.
