Patrick Morrisey Projected to Win West Virginia GOP Gubernatorial Primary, Staving Off Political Dynasties


West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey (R) is projected to win the Republican gubernatorial nomination in the Mountain State.

Decision Desk called the race for Morrisey at 9:18 p.m. ET. As of 9:35 p.m., roughly 77 percent of the vote was in, and Morrisey held a five-point lead, per the New York Times. He successfully staved off two political dynasties by beating out former State Delegate Moore Capito, the son of U.S. Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), and Chris Miller, son of U.S. Rep. Carol Miller (R-WV). They were his top opponents in the crowded field, along with Secretary of State Mac Warner.
