Like many in his family before him, Riley Moore began his career working as a welder in a West Virginia rock quarry. While welding, Riley put himself through school and eventually went on to receive a master’s degree from the National Defense University. His unique background has culminated in his role as West Virginia State Treasurer where he has embodied the “on-offense” spirit.

In today’s episode of The Kevin Roberts Show, West Virginia State Treasurer Riley Moore breaks down how Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) is less an investment strategy than a move towards progressive control over American society. He explains how states like his are fighting—and winning—this battle.

Each episode of The Kevin Roberts Show is a weekly rallying cry for lovers of freedom everywhere, packed with Dr. Roberts’ analysis on the issues of the day and deep conversations with the movers and shakers of American politics and culture. And all of it backed by the academic excellence of The Heritage Foundation. 

As a former college professor and current president of The Heritage Foundation, America’s most influential policy organization, Dr. Roberts has spent his career learning, educating, and taking decisive action for a brighter America. He believes that conservatives have every reason to be hopeful, because conservative ideas are ideas that work. It’s time to go on offense.
