Marty Gearheart releases statement on Primary Election results

Candidate Marty Gearheart releases statement after losing bid in West Virginia's Republican Primary Election for the third Congressional District.

"We fought a long and hard campaign in the Republican primary for West Virginia’s Third Congressional District. Unfortunately, we came up a bit short. Liberals and moderates within our party funneled large amounts of money into the Third District in order to select their handpicked choice for the Republican nomination. Despite being outspent $500,000 to $100,000 by 3 different candidates, we only lost by 4%. We were able to win big in Mercer County along with victories in Summers, Monroe, Greenbrier, and McDowell counties. I want to thank all of my staff, interns, volunteers and dedicated supporters for putting their faith in me and working constantly on behalf of the campaign. God Bless you all and thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support. I will not stop fighting for Southern West Virginia!"---Marty Gearheart
