A Look At Upcoming Elections On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, it’s still a year away, but already, West Virginia’s U.S. Senate election is set to be one of the most competitive and most watched in the country.

To get an idea of how it might shape up, Curtis Tate spoke with Kyle Kondik, communications director for the University of Virginia Center for Politics.

Kondik is also managing editor of its widely read newsletter, Sabato’s Crystal Ball.

Also, in this show, voters in Kentucky will pare down a 12-candidate field for the Republican nomination for governor. As Lisa Autry of WKYU reports, it’s a job Republicans have struggled to hold, despite a strong showing in other races.
