Kanawha Legislature races: Robinson becomes Dem nominee for Palumbo’s seat; incumbent Bartlett ousted | Politics | wvgazettemail.com

House District 39: Only one delegate can represent this district, which includes part of northern Kanawha bordering Putnam, Jackson and Roane counties, including Sissonville.

Incumbent Republican T. Kevan Bartlett (947), who sponsored the successful Bible-in-public-schools law this year, lost to Dana Ferrell (1,271) in the GOP primary, so Ferrell will face David “Woody” Holmes, the only Democrat to file, in November.
