"They believe that she is all that a Republican woman in Congress ought to be," she said. "She represents those four tenets of what Maggie's List stands for: Fiscal conservatism, less government, personal responsibly and strong national security."
In the endorsement, the organization said that while the U.S. Senate has failed to pass a budget in more than four years, Capito has worked with House leaders on budget resolutions that would have reduced spending.
They also noted in their press release that Capito has voted in favor of legislation that requires the House and Senate to pass a budget or forgo their pay.
"West Virginia women understand that their families can't go without a budget, so Washington politicians must live within their means as well," the release said.
Although Election Day is still a long way off and no Democrats have stepped forward to formally announce their candidacy, Capito is enjoying healthy leads in early polling.
In January, national GOP firm Harper Polling said Capito enjoys a healthy 50-to-32 percent lead over presumed Democratic front-runner Rep. Nick Rahall.
A poll by West Virginia-based Mark Blankenship Enterprises released earlier this week found Capito leads Rahall by a 55-to-37 percent margin.
Maggie's List is named after Maine politician Margaret Chase Smith, the first woman elected to both houses of Congress. She was first elected to the House in 1940.
