CHARLESTON, W.Va. – U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) today released a video message ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday.

Full video transcript included below:

“Every year during the Thanksgiving holiday, we are reminded of our many blessings.

“As West Virginians, we are so fortunate to be from a state as close-knit and community-focused.

“In fact, I often describe our state as just one big small town.

“I am so thankful to call West Virginia home, where my family has lived for generations, where Charlie and I have been fortunate to raise our family, and the state I have had the honor of representing in the United States Senate.

“Whether it’s family, friends, good health, or the selfless service of our men and women who protect our freedoms every day, we have so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.

“I encourage all of my fellow West Virginians to reflect on what they are grateful for, and take a moment to express gratitude for the people they hold the dearest.

“I hope everybody has a great meal, and I wish all of you a very happy and safe Thanksgiving.”
