KANAWHA COUNTY, WV (WOWK) – Republican West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice has won reelection. He fended off a Democratic challenger by positioning himself as an ally of President Donald Trump with the experience to create jobs.
Justice beat Democrat Ben Salango, a Kanawha County commissioner. Salango tried to overcome his lack of name recognition with a campaign aimed at painting the billionaire governor as more interested in running his business empire than fixing the state’s roads and economy.
Justice will serve a second and final term under the state’s term limits.
