INWOOD, W.Va. - U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito and Anne Barth, her Democratic opponent in Tuesday's general election, responded to each other's negative campaign ads to kick off a forum Wednesday evening in Berkeley County that attracted more than 200 people to Musselman High School's auditorium. Capito, who is seeking her fifth term representing West Virginia's 2nd Congressional District, is being challenged by Barth, a former aide to U.S. Sen. Robert C. Byrd. "I have served I think with great integrity in this office and I am very insulted really when I see an insinuation ... that my vote is for sale," Capito said when asked to respond to an ad that notes campaign contributions she received from "big oil" and her vote on subsidies benefiting the industry.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Downtown business leaders in Martinsburg were upbeat Monday about the economic health of the community's historic commerce district, despite less than tourist-friendly gas prices and unsettled financial times on Wall Street. Tuscan Sun owner Laura Gassler said she saw fewer people at her gourmet food and wine shop from the Washington, D.C., area when gas prices were high this summer. But she also noticed a lot more "local traffic," including a number of relatively new residents of the area who said they never visited the downtown area.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- Anne Barth, the Democratic nominee vying to unseat U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito in November, received a ringing endorsement Monday from U.S. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, who touted Barth's ties to U.S. Sen. Robert Byrd's success in bringing federal infrastructure dollars back to West Virginia. "Anne Barth knows how to deliver," Hoyer, a 28-year Democratic congressman from Maryland's 5th district, said in Martinsburg. Barth, flanked by Hoyer and Martinsburg Mayor George Karos for what was billed as a discussion on infrastructure, didn't mention Capito by name, but criticized funding shortfalls for roads, bridges and other needs she said were essential to spur economic development.

Shelley Moore Capito said her visit Friday to the Berkeley County Senior Center was all about an effort to spotlight the need for residents to file a 2007 tax return, even if they don't have a tax obligation, to receive an economic stimulus check.
