CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren will campaign for Natalie Tennant in West Virginia next month in a push to keep a Democratic Senate seat.

Warren will accompany Tennant in the Eastern Panhandle on July 14 as she rolls out an education agenda. Tennant's campaign provided trip details to The Associated Press.

A Massachusetts Democrat, Warren has been called a progressive star and potential presidential candidate in 2016, though she says she won't run.

Tennant is West Virginia's Secretary of State. The Democrat and Republican U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito are competing for retiring Democratic Sen. Jay Rockefeller's seat.

In April, Democratic U.S. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota crisscrossed West Virginia with Tennant.

Heitkamp and Tennant spoke against President Barack Obama's proposed rules limiting carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants.
