Winner of Democratic nomination for 2nd Congressional District announced
(WSAZ) - Barry Wendell has won the Democratic Party nomination in West Virginia’s newly redrawn U.S. House District 2.
Wendell defeated Angela Dwyer in Tuesday’s Primary Election.
Wendell will face off against Rep. Alex Mooney in November.
Mooney won the Republican Party’s nomination Tuesday in the state’s 2nd Congressional District race.
When asked about his thoughts on facing Mooney, Wendell said, “As a religious person, I believe in miracles, and I think it might just take that, but I think I have something to offer he doesn’t. My platform is to do things that will help people in the state, bring back the extended child care tax credit, make sure the black lung minors benefit is fully funded, and lower the cost of prescription drugs, particularly insulin.”
Wendell, a former Morgantown city council member, claims Mooney brings little to the campaign other than his endorsement from former president Donald Trump.
“His whole thing is, the signs I saw for him say ‘Mooney-Trump,’ and that’s all he has,” Wendell said. “He has nothing really to offer anyone, as far as I can see, and I do.”
The general election is set for Tuesday, November 8, 2022.
