Armstead, Hutchison reelected to West Virginia Supreme Court

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Incumbent justices Tim Armstead and John Hutchison have won back their seats on the West Virginia Supreme Court.

Armstead, a former House speaker, won a 12-year term by defeating two candidates Tuesday night, including former Justice Richard Neely.

Hutchison beat two others in a special election for a four-year term.

The other race was too close to call late Tuesday night.

Four candidates were vying for a 12-year term after Justice Margaret Workman did not run for reelection.

The primary serves as the general election for the Supreme Court, whose races became nonpartisan in 2016.
