In shocking style, Donald Trump has won the 2016 Presidential election by winning the State of Pennsylvania and garnering 276 electoral votes compared to Hillary Clinton’s 218.

On the state level, Jim Justice (D) will be West Virginia’s 36th Governor having defeated Senate President and Lt Governor Bill Cole (R) by a 49 – 42% margin while State Republicans maintain control over the state legislature by adding to its current majority in the Senate and maintaining a plus sixty (60) advantage in the House of Delegates.

State Attorney General Patrick Morrisey won reelection and WVCA-endorsed, executive office candidates Mac Warner, JB McCuskey, and Kent Leonhardt were successful in their bids to join General  Morrisey on the Board of Public Works as Secretary of State, Auditor and Agriculture Commissioner respectively. 

All three incumbent congressional representatives -- David McKinley, Evan Jenkins and Alex Mooney easily won reelection and the Presidential race between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton remains undecided as Trump continues to gain ground in traditional Democratic states.

A more detailed analysis of state and federal races will be prepared later today.  If yo have any questions, please give one of us a call at 304-342-4153.
