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