On this Page Primary results for President, U.S. Senate, Governor, U.S. House and State Legislature


U.S. Senate

Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin is retiring. In this deep red state, particularly in a presidential election year, the seat is all but certain to flip to the GOP. 

The Republican primary features outgoing Gov. Jim Justice and Rep. Alex Mooney (WV-02). Both candidates have drawn prominent endorsements and raised significant funds. However, polling shows Justice - endorsed by Trump - well ahead in the race.

The Democratic primary includes Don Blankenship, who ran for the GOP nomination in 2018, finishing 3rd. This came after he spent a year in prison for violating safety standards in conjunction with a mine explosion that killed 29 workers in 2010. Also on the ballot are Wheeling Mayor Glenn Elliott, who has been endorsed by Manchin, and Marine veteran Zach Shrewsbury.


Republican Gov. Jim Justice was ineligible to run for a third consecutive term. As noted above, he is likely to be the state's next U.S. Senator.

Four major candidates are among the six looking to succeed Justice. The winner of this primary will be a prohibitive favorite in November. The number in parentheses is the average of the two most recent independent polls.

  • Patrick Morrisey, Attorney General (33%)
  • Moore Capito, former State Delegate (27%)
  • Chris Miller, businessman (23%)
  • Mac Warner, Secretary of State (13%)

Capito is the son of Sen. Shelly Moore Capito. Miller is the son of Rep. Carol Miller (WV-01).

Attorney General

Attorney General Patrick Morrisey is seeking the Republican nomination for Governor. Both primaries feature two candidates; the winning Republican will be heavily favored in November.

Secretary of State

Incumbent Mac Warner is seeking the Republican nomination for Governor. Four Republicans are looking to replace him. The nominee will be a prohibitive favorite in November against Thornton Cooper, who is unopposed for the Democrats.

U.S. House

Both seats are held by Republicans, with neither expected to be remotely competitive in November. However, both of the primaries to nominate those almost-certain winners are worth watching.

District Party Comments
1 R Rep. Carol Moore is seeking a 4th term in Congress. She has drawn an aggressive challenge from Derrick Evans, a former member of the State House. Evans participated in the January 6 Capitol attack and served three months in prison after pleading guilty to a felony charge.
2 R Five Republicans are looking to succeed Rep. Alex Mooney, who is running for Senate. The frontrunner appears to be the State Treasurer, Riley Moore.
