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.”

Baxter said as a member of Congress he would make sure universities in West Virginia would be properly considered in discussions for grants and projects.

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.”
