Republican candidate Alex Mooney has outspent a crowded primary field for West Virginia's lone open congressional seat.
Seven Republicans are vying for the seat filled by U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito, a Republican leaving to run for U.S. Senate.
Berkeley Springs pharmacist Ken Reed, the next highest GOP spender, reported almost $288,000 in costs. Charlotte Lane, a former commissioner of the U.S. International Trade Commission and the state Public Service Commission, spent $256,700.
In the Democratic primary, former state Democratic Party chairman Nick Casey is favored over state Delegate Meshea Poore, who only raised about $50,500.
Casey has about $630,000 in his campaign account.
