Rep. Alexander Mooney (R-WV)

Trump-endorsed West Virginia Representative Alex Mooney defeated David McKinley in the state primary on Tuesday night.

This is another victory for President Trump who went 55 and 0 last week in Ohio and Indiana.

Business Insider reported:

Rep. Alex Mooney was forced to square off against fellow Republican Rep. David McKinley after West Virginia lost one of its House seats as a direct result of reapportionment following 2020 US Census. Mooney’s win once again demonstrates how crucial former President Donald Trump’s backing can be in a Republican primary.

West Virginia is holding congressional and state legislative primaries on Tuesday — including the first primary election of the 2022 midterms where two members of Congress are competing against each other head-to-head.

Mooney is leading with 77% of the vote counted.
