Statewide Analysis

Presidential:
Since 2000, the five electoral votes of West Virginia have gone to the Republican nominee.  2016 was no different than those four previous cycles and Donald Trump won West Virginia's five electoral votes.

House:
All three incumbents were re-elected to the U.S. House of Representatives and the West Virginia Delegation remains a unified GOP block.

Governor:
Democratic nominee Jim Justice (D) defeated West Virginia State Senate President Bill Cole (R).  Cole had been closely aligned with both the Trump campaign and the Tea Party movement.  Justice is a former Republican who ran a more middle of the road campaign.  Despite West Virginia going for Trump, it is clear that West Virginia voters were seeking a more moderate candidate to be their Governor.  

Other Notable Election Results:
No state wide ballot questions were on the ballot in 2016.  Republicans maintained their slight majority of 18 seats in the West Virginia State Senate to the Democratic minority of 16 seats.  And in the  West Virginia House of Delegates Republicans held control with 64 seats to the Democrats holding 36 seats.
