Upticket races are competitive highlights in Webster County


While there’s plenty of races high on the ticket that offer some competition in Webster County this year, the county races are the exact opposite: C. Dale Hall is the sole candidate for County Commission this year.

For the House of Delegates, incumbent Democrat Dana Lynch is running to keep his seat in the chamber.  He’ll face Republican challenger Caleb Hanna and Mountain Party candidate Barbara Daniels for the 44th district seat, which includes all of Webster County.

In the State Senate, Webster County voters will choose from two candidates in other parts of the district.  Republican Bill Hamilton of Upshur County is running for the seat left open after the primary defeat of Senator Robert Karnes.  He is being challenged by Pocahontas County Democrat Laura Finch.

Polls open for Election Day at 6:30 Tuesday morning.
