US Senate: As expected, Shelley Capito (R) and Natalie Tennant (D) easily beat back primary challengers, setting the stage for West Virginia to elect its first female Senator this November. Capito is the current US Representative from District 2; Tennant is the Secretary of State. Capito has led in limited polling and the race is indicated as Lean Republican by the pros. Current Senator Jay Rockefeller is retiring.
US House: All vote totals can be seen here.
WV-01: Incumbent Republican David McKinley and Democrat Glen Gainer faced no primary opposition. Gainer is the State Auditor; McKinley is serving his 2nd term and is likely to win re-election this fall.
WV-02: Former State Senator Alex Mooney emerged victorious in a crowded Republican field to replace incumbent Shelly Capito. A two-way battle on the Democratic side was won by Nick Casey, former state party chairman. This race is rated as Lean Republican.
WV-03: Incumbent Democrat Nick Rahall fought off a primary challenge and will face State Senator Evan Jenkins this fall. Rahall is in his 19th term but is in a very competitive race that is seen as a Toss-Up.
Races: West Virginia US House of Representatives District 1, West Virginia US House of Representatives District 2, West Virginia US House of Representatives District 3, West Virginia US Senate
