CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Both of the candidates in this election’s 12th Senatorial District contest have experience serving in Charleston.

Incumbent Sen. Doug Facemire, D-Braxton, has served in the state Senate since January 2009. As for his Republican opponent — Lewis County Delegate Patrick Martin — his time in the state Legislature began in January 2017.

Facemire and Martin are looking to represent District 12, which includes Braxton, Clay, Harrison and Lewis counties as well as parts of Gilmer County.

“I have a little bit of a unique district,” Facemire told MetroNews. “The Lewis County, Harrison County part of the district is doing quite well with the FBI center in Clarksburg and the airport.

“As you move down into Braxton, Gilmer and Clay, it’s a completely different story. These are areas that relied a lot on oil, gas and coal for the last 100 years, and those industries are dwindling.”

Facemire and Martin share a similar goal: increase economic opportunities to encourage West Virginians to stay in the state.

“So many of the kids I went to school with have left the state in search of a better job and a better opportunity,” Martin said. “I think we’ve done some good steps toward bringing those jobs back to West Virginia, and I just want to continue that fight in the state Senate.”

Facemire struck a similar tone, saying he wants his grandchildren to live in West Virginia.

“I don’t want to go to Charlotte to visit them,” he stated.

Martin touched on the accomplishments of the House of Delegates; he noted his support for eliminating the Social Security tax and income tax on veterans.

“I feel like it’s kind of a double taxation,” he said of the Social Security tax. “I definitely think that is some great legislation that we passed.”

Martin said the Legislature’s top priority when lawmakers return to Charleston in January will be the coronavirus pandemic. He also noted the coronavirus has shown the importance of additional investment into broadband and infrastructure.

He said the main difference between him and Facemire regards social issues. West Virginians for Life and the Family Policy Council of West Virginia have backed Martin’s campaign, as well as the National Rifle Association.

“I feel like Christian values are a very important part of my life, and I just want to continue fighting for those principles in the Legislature,” he said.

West Virginians for Life advocates for anti-abortion policies. The Family Policy Council of West Virginia also supports anti-abortion positions and opposes gay marriage.

“Marriage is under attack by activists wishing to redefine the term to include the recognition of unnatural pairings other than one man and one woman. West Virginia’s current marriage laws are weak and vulnerable to liberal judges wishing to subvert the will of our overwhelmingly conservative citizens,” the organization states on its website.

“To protect natural marriage West Virginia needs an amendment to its state constitution clearly defining marriage as only between one man and one woman.”

Facemire said he and his Democratic colleagues have shifted their focus to collaboration since losing control of the Legislature in January 2015. Facemire added Democrats are not afraid to stand up to Republicans, noting the opposition to removing the inventory tax.

“Every year, it’s a challenge with the budget,” he said about the upcoming legislative session. “Especially since we’ve lost so much of our severance tax income and the fact that we have a dwindling population, which is something that has to get addressed immediately.”

Facemire said state officials cannot rely on the coal and natural gas industries for jobs. He added while he supports fossil fuels, West Virginia leaders need to re-evaluate the state’s future.

“Unfortunately, we’ve tried to make a political football out of this,” he said. “With coal, when President Trump was running (in 2016), he was saying he was going to bring coal back. I knew down deep that he knew better than that. Here we are four years later, and we are mining less coal and have less jobs than we had.”

Facemire said West Virginians need leaders to retool the state’s economy by working with companies already in the state, in which all parties focus on expanding existing operations.

“In my 12 years in Charleston, one of the things that I have found is the businesses that we lure here with incentives, there are people with more money and bigger incentives that can buy them out,” he said. “We need to invest in the businesses that are here right now and see what we can do to help them grow.”

Facemire has received endorsements from the West Virginia Education Association, the West Virginia School Service Personnel Association and the United Mine Workers of America among other organizations.

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in West Virginia

A scorecard evaluates a legislator’s voting record. Its purpose is to inform voters about the legislator’s political positions. Because scorecards have varying purposes and methodologies, each report should be considered on its own merits. For example, an advocacy group’s scorecard may assess a legislator’s voting record on one issue while a state newspaper’s scorecard may evaluate the voting record in its entirety.

Ballotpedia is in the process of developing an encyclopedic list of published scorecards. Some states have a limited number of available scorecards or scorecards produced only by select groups. It is Ballotpedia’s goal to incorporate all available scorecards regardless of ideology or number.
