The Committee to Reelect Jim Justice issued the following statement in response to Ben Salango and his hypocritical record regarding oil and gas jobs in West Virginia:

“Liberal personal injury lawyer Ben Salango is a fraud when it comes to oil and gas jobs. It’s decision time, and there is no phone-a-friend to call daddy Joe Manchin here. Political candidate Ben Salango says he supports more oil and gas jobs, but at the same time, liberal personal injury lawyer Ben Salango attacks and sues these job creators. The Salango personal injury law firm advertises on its website, soliciting lawsuits to sue oil and gas companies out of West Virginia as we speak. He has gotten wealthy by targeting our oil and gas job providers. Inexperienced Ben Salango can’t have it both ways,” said Clay Sutton, Communications Director for Governor Justice’s reelection campaign.
