Last minute get out the vote push in West Virginia


Republican U.S. Senate candidate Patrick Morrisey had a campaign stop Monday morning in Putnam County. He was also making visits to three other communities in the state.

Campaign workers for Senator Joe Manchin waved signs at drivers outside his downtown Charleston campaign headquarters.

Both parties firmly believe their candidate will be victorious Tuesday night. 

“I do believe that Senator Manchin will prevail at the end of the day simply because he’s Senator Manchin. His record is proven that he stands up for West Virginia families and West Virginia workers,” said Belinda Biafore, Chairwoman of the West Virginia Democratic Party.

“President Trump loves West Virginia and his plea to West Virginians is please send me a senator who is Republican who is going to help me accomplish my agenda in Washington,”  said Ronna McDaniel, Chairwoman of the Republican National Committee.

Aside from the Senate Race, all three U.S. House seats are on the line. 

The Senate race could decide which party runs the upper chamber in Washington and both sides believe they’ll win.

“We’re going to win. We’re going to win. President Trump has come in, put a lot of time in. I think we’re going to get all the momentum we need especially out of this area,” Morrisey said. 

“I know how good this state is, and the people, because I was born and raised in Farmington, coal mining town. I know it as well as anybody can know it,” said Senator Manchin. 

More than 180,000 West Virginians already voted by early ballot. That’s 15 percent of registered voters.

Aside from the house Congressional races, there are a host of competitive races for seats in the House of Delegates and State Senate at the West Virginia Capitol. Plus seats on the state Supreme Court
