Campaign themes

2014

Casey mentioned some of his campaign themes on his website. According to his website, "Nick Casey is running for Congress to change the partisan gridlock that is tearing our country apart. His experience as a negotiator has taught him how to work with people he disagrees with and to get results for business and labor. He is a common sense guy who will not let West Virginia get pushed around and will stand up to the special interests in Washington. Nick believes it’s time to bring our brave troops home and build schools and roads in West Virginia counties, not in Iraq and Afghanistan. He will vote to responsibly cut spending, but not on the backs of Social Security and Medicare recipients. And Nick will fight for West Virginia’s industries, like coal, natural gas and farming, and against increasing regulations from Washington. He’ll dedicate himself to helping create value added jobs that provide good wages in West Virginia now and for generations to come. Nick Casey, exactly the person the 2nd district needs to represent them in Congress."[4]
