Caleb Hanna was sworn into the West Virginia legislature last month, making the staunchly pro-life lawmaker America’s youngest black legislator.
“I’m proudly a Christian conservative and was raised on the belief that success is built with hard work, commitment and dedication – West Virginia values that continue to guide me today,” Caleb Hanna said last May during his campaign.
Elected when he was just 19, Hanna easily defeated his Democratic opponent, incumbent Dana L. Lynch.
While fulfilling a campaign promise to bring “A New Era of Leadership to West Virginia government,” Hanna will also pursue an economics degree at West Virginia State University.
“At a time when politics has become unhinged, I’ll be a voice of reason, and I won’t forget who I represent: the people of West Virginia,” Hanna said.
