The Mountain Party has nominated Charlotte Pritt as its candidate for governor.

Pritt was nominated during a party convention in Bridgeport on Saturday.

As a Democrat, Pritt lost to Republican Cecil Underwood in the 1996 governor’s race.

The party also nominated candidates for attorney general and some state legislative races. It also endorsed all three Democrats running against incumbent Republicans in West Virginia’s three U.S. House districts.
