PARKERSBURG, W.Va. — Local Republicans gathered at J.P. Henry’s Tuesday to watch the first State of the Union speech from President Donald Trump. For the most part they said they were pleased with what they heard.
Wood County Commissioner Blair Couch said he was hoping for a speech where the president will attempt to bring the country together.
“I hope he takes a page from the Ronald Reagan book and hopefully offers some conciliation to the other side,” he said. “It has been a tough year; I’m more of a John Kasich Republican and that puts me in a different position for West Virginia.”
