CHARLESTON – Robin Davis has accepted the endorsement of a statewide education group for her re-election bid to the West Virginia Supreme Court.
The American Federation of Teachers -– West Virginia voted to endorse Davis based on her strong advocacy for education issues, including her leadership on the Court's initiative to reduce truancy and early drop-out rates.
