Capito and the Shame of Poverty

I’m running ten miles in each of eighteen counties in Shelley Moore Capito’s district.

As of today, I’ve run in nine out of the eighteen counties.

Yes, I’m halfway home.

It’s been an eye opener.

Yes, it’s a beautiful district.

It’s also a poor district.

This week, I met a Vietnam vet outside of a Sheetz.

Asking for money.

See his story and video here.
