Congressman Evan Jenkins Files to Run for GOP Nomination for United States Senate

By Connect Clarksburg Staff | January 20, 2018
West Virginia Third District Congressman Evan Jenkins is officially in the race for U.S. Senate.

Jenkins, a Republican, filed his paperwork Tuesday with the West Virginia Secretary of State’s Office. He announced his campaign in May 2017.
During an appearance on Tuesday’s MetroNews “Talkline,” Jenkins said he’s focused on working with President Donald Trump.
“Donald Trump needs somebody who has a proven record, who is a conservative that has been with Donald Trump from Day 1 and I have,” he said.
Jenkins is running to take the place of Democratic U.S. Senator Joe Manchin, who is up for re-election this year.
One of Jenkins’ GOP opponents, state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey, tweeted Tuesday that Jenkins “lacks the record” and “is now in the race as a spoiler for Manchin.”
