West Virginia Democratic state Sen. Sam Cann falls to primary challenger

Reported by: Associated Press
Wednesday, May 14, 2014 12:35 AM EDT

Democratic Sen. Sam Cann has lost his seat in in West Virginia's priciest statehouse primary race.

Harrison County Commissioner Mike Romano shelled out $137,000 in his quest to defeat Cann. Cann spent $73,800 defending his Harrison County-anchored seat.

Romano will face Republican Mike Queen in the 12th district race. Queen has raised about $14,400 and spent $8,000 so far.

Half of the Senate's 34 seats are on the ballot this election cycle. Only four Senate seats on the ballot included primary contests — two Democratic, two Republican.

Republicans Robert Karnes and Tom Tabuko and Democrat Mike Woelfel advanced out of the other three Senate primaries. All three face general election tests.

Democrats maintain a 24-10 majority in the Senate.
