Maloney Wins WV GOP Gubernatorial Primary

Maloney's victory gives his party an intriguing nominee. On the one hand, his ability to put his personal wealth into his campaign coupled with his personal narrative -- Maloney ran an ad that pointed to his role in helping devise a plan to free trapped Chilean Miners in 2010 -- could help him run as a nontraditional candidate with the ability to appeal to voters looking for someone outside the establishment. Still, his status of a relative unknown means we don't yet know very much about his past, which could open him up to surprise attacks from opponents. A report earlier this month noted that Maloney has donated money to Democrats, which was a blow he had to defend himself against in a GOP primary. Updated at 10:10 p.m.
