MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Ralph Baxter, a Democratic contender for West Virginia’s first District U.S. Representative seat in the 2018 election, said he will stand up for West Virginia University.
“[WVU] is one of the great assets of the state of West Virginia,” Baxter said. “It’s really one of its shining lights.”
“I want to make sure if I’m elected to be the representative of the first district that the resources are made available to WVU to be the best that it can be,” Baxter said.
Baxter, the former CEO of Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe, an international law firm, was once a sixth grade teacher. Baxter said “education is vital for everyone’s opportunity to live the american dream.”
