Rep. Alex Mooney on Tuesday won West Virginia’s Republican primary in the 2nd District over fellow incumbent Rep. David McKinley. 

Mooney had the backing of former President Donald Trump, while McKinley supported the $1 trillion infrastructure package and voted to create the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

The Associated Press called the race for Mooney, who held 52.7% of the vote with 86.6% reporting as of press time. McKinley lagged behind with 36.7% of the vote at that time.

Trump-endorsed West Virginia incumbent Rep. Carol Miller beat four GOP primary challengers and will go on to face Democrat Lacy Watson this fall to earn her third term in the House.
