CHARLESTON — State Supreme Court candidate Allen Loughry on Wednesday unveiled his campaign’s first television ad.
The ad, called “My House,” allows voters to learn more about Loughry and his family by taking a tour of their home in Charleston.
“We think we have a winning strategy and we will be aggressive in communicating our message through television beginning today and running through Election Day,” Loughry said Wednesday.
Loughry, his wife Kelly and their six-year old son, Justus, appear in the ad, which can be seen online at YouTube.
Loughry has been a lawyer for the West Virginia Supreme Court for the past nine years. He has four law degrees from American University, University of London and Capital University. He also studied law at Oxford University.
Prior to working at the Supreme Court, Loughry practiced law as a Senior Assistant Attorney General arguing cases at all levels of the state and federal system including arguing more than 20 cases before the state’s high court.
Loughry is the author of “Don’t Buy Another Vote, I Won’t Pay for a Landslide,” a book detailing political corruption in West Virginia. The book not only details how West Virginians have suffered from political corruption, but provides a 50-point plan to reform the state’s political system.
During his career, Loughry has served as a Special Prosecuting Attorney, Assistant County Prosecutor, Direct Aide to Gov. Gaston Caperton, Senior Assistant Attorney General and Special Assistant to a Congressman. He also has worked with more than 20 Supreme Court justices at both the Ohio and West Virginia supreme courts.
Loughry is a lifelong West Virginia resident and native of Tucker County.
Loughry and Circuit Judge John Yoder, both Republicans, face incumbent Justice Robin Jean Davis and Charleston attorney Tish Chafin, both Democrats, for two seats on the Supreme Court in this fall’s general election.
