PINEVILLE (WVVA) - Wyoming County was a key battleground for one of the state's most heated primary contests -- the 9th Senate District showdown between dueling incumbents Daniel Hall and Richard Browning.

While Browning led Hall by 212 votes in Wyoming, Hall defeated Browning by a mere 220 votes in the overall contest, according to unofficial returns.  Senate District 9 includes precincts in Wyoming, Raleigh and McDowell counties.

The matchup between incumbents was the result of the state's recent redistricting. Hall will face unchallenged Republican Epp Cline in November.

In county-exclusive contests, Silas Mullins Jr. won the Democrat County Commission nomination, with 1,982 votes to John Daniels' 1,070.

Kim Farmer, 2,137; Craig Cook, 1,757; and J.R. Boles, 1,457 earned nominations on the Dem Magistrate ticket. Jeff Dunigon finished fourth with 1,401.

Michael Prichard and Robert Bailey won Board of Education nominations, collecting 2,235 and 2,036 votes respectively. Perry Cook finished with 1,754.

In the county's votes for the presidential nominations, Texas inmate Keith Judd surprisingly won collected votes on the Democratic ticket than incumbent President Barack Obama. Judd received 1,428 votes, while Obama received 1,085. On the GOP side, Mitt Romney was easily the favorite, collecting more than 75 percent of the votes.
