The race for a contested U.S. Senate seat in West Virginia is already getting heated. And, it also looks to get very expensive.

It is a contested Republican primary, and that usually means a lot of sharp elbows and advertising money being spent.

“Liberal Jim Justice, just can’t be trusted,” says an attack ad produced for the U.S. Senate campaign of Rep. Alex Mooney (R) West Virginia.

The Alex Mooney for Senate campaign is running critical ads against his Republican primary opponent, Governor Jim Justice (R) West Virginia.
The primary election is May 7, 2024.

Rep. Mooney is one of the few Congress critters that champions sound money.
West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice won the state’s Republican US Senate primary, positioning the two-term governor as the clear favorite to succeed retiring Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin in the deep-red state.

Justice triumphed in a crowded GOP primary that included US Rep. Alex Mooney, a member of the hard-line House Freedom Caucus. He will face Wheeling Mayor Glenn Elliott, who had Manchin’s endorsement and won the three-way Democratic primary. The West Virginia Senate seat has long been seen as the most likely to flip this cycle and will be key to GOP hopes of winning the Senate this November.

That's a shame.
