CHARLESTON – Today is the primary election in West Virginia. The polls opened this morning at 6:30 a.m. and close at 7:30 p.m. this evening.  WVCA President Bill Raney released the following comments:

“We can honestly say that never in the history of our state has a single election been more important. We are choosing offices all the way from the county courthouse to the White House, “ Raney said. “And the very future of our state and our state’s leading industry ride, in large part, on the outcome of this vote.  We would also urge you to specifically vote for Beth Walker in the race for Supreme Court.  Today’s election will determine who will be the next justice.  It is important to remember there is no general election in November for the Supreme Court.”

Following is a list of our endorsements for today’s election. Make a difference today! Vote Coal!  As always, thanks. 

“Mr. President, On behalf of the best coal miners in the world, who mine the cleanest and safest; the most environmentally sound coal in the world,” Hamilton said. “We’re so pleased to endorse you today, wish you the best of luck and vow to support you the best we can.”
