West Virginia's 5 electors all vote for Trump as president

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, WV (AP) - West Virginia's five representatives to the electoral college have voted for Donald Trump to be the next U.S. president and Mike Pence for vice president.
    
All were chosen earlier this year by West Virginia's Republican Party. They got the nod after their party's candidate won a majority of the state's popular vote.
    
Trump, the Republican, received 68.6 percent of the statewide total. Democrat Hillary Clinton got 26.5 percent.
    
The electors are Senate President Bill Cole, West Virginia Secretary of State-elect Mac Warner, re-elected Attorney General Patrick Morrisey, businessman Ron Foster and banker Ann Urling who ran for state treasurer.
    
They met in the West Virginia House of Delegates chamber in Charleston, where they filled out paper ballots.
    
Secretary of State Natalie Tennant counted them aloud to applause in the chamber.

    A dangerous section of Route 35 could soon see a major upgrade. Tuesday night state leaders outlined plans to renovate the Buffalo Bridge and a portion of the highway from Putnam County to the Ohio state line. The project will be completed one way or another, but it depends on the state road bond for work to get started- otherwise it could be years. Constant congestion, roll-overs and head-on crashes are taxing emergency responders in the area.
