CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Former Maryland Republican Party chairman Alex Mooney has emerged from a crowded field to earn the GOP's nomination in West Virginia's 2nd Congressional District.

Seven Republicans were in the field as the GOP tries to retain the seat currently held by Shelley Moore Capito, who is running for U.S. Senate.

Unofficial returns show Mooney had 33 percent of the vote, and both Berkeley County pharmacist Ken Reed and Charleston attorney Charlotte Lane were at about 20 percent.

Others in the race were Charles Town private investigator Robert Fluharty, former state legislator Steve Harrison, Hurricane businessman Jim Moss and Charleston financial consultant Ron Walters Jr.
