CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Former West Virginia Democratic Party chairman Nick Casey has won his party's nomination in the 2nd congressional district, easily defeating challenger Meshea Poore.

Early, unofficial returns show Casey ahead by 16 percentage points.

Casey far outspent Poore, who was trying to become the first black from West Virginia elected to the House.

Casey wants to focus on improving roads and promoting coal, natural gas and other energy resources to bring jobs to the state and keep young adults from heading out-of-state.

He led the state party from 2004 until 2010 and served as a legislative lobbyist for decades.

Poore is in her third term as a member of the state House of Delegates.

Both Casey and Poore are attorneys.
