U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions to visit Charleston
CHARLESTON, WV (WCHS/WVAH) —
U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions and other conservative leaders will visit the Mountain State this month for an American Conservative Union Foundation event.
The event is themed “West Virginia on the Rise: Rebuilding the Economy, Rebuilding Lives,” according to a news release from the foundation. It will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Four Points by Sheraton on Kanawha Boulevard in Charleston.
Between battling the opioid epidemic, record unemployment and unprecedented levels of poverty, current economic and cultural conditions make it difficult for some West Virginians to realize potential for a favorable future.
The American Conservative Union Foundation and the Cardinal Institute will host Sessions; Rep. Alex Mooney; Jackie Anderson with the American Conservative Union Foundation; Grant Collins with Workforce Development; Robin Hildebrand with Adventures on the Gorge; Tom Hoenig with Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.; Tom Pyle with American Energy Alliance; and David Safavian of ACUF Center for Criminal Justice Reform at the event.
In May, Sessions was at the University of Charleston, where he made an address at the Drug Enforcement Administration’s 360 Heroin & Opioid Response Summit.
