Democrats choose nominees for West Virginia Supreme Court
West Virginia: Yesterday was the primary election in West Virginia. Six Democratic candidates competed to be the nominees for two positions on the Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia; Robin Jean Davis, James J. Rowe, H. John Rogers, Louis Palmer, Letitia Chafin and J.D. Beane.
Davis and Chafin will advance to the general elections, where they compete against Republicans Allen Loughry and John Yoder. Loughry has worked as a clerk for the high court since 2006 and was one of the first candidates to declare for the race, announcing in July 2011 that he intended to seek a position. Yoder is a judge on the Twenty-Third Judicial Circuit and was narrowly defeated by Justice Thomas E. McHugh in the 2010 election.
