Charleston, WV — West Virginia Republican Party (WVGOP) Chairwoman Elgine McArdle issued the following statement following yesterday’s ruling in the United States District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia to allow President Trump to remain on the ballot in West Virginia in 2024.

“Today’s court ruling in West Virginia is a win for West Virginians and the rule of law. The WVGOP is very proud to have defended President Trump’s right to be a candidate in the upcoming election, and I was honored by the opportunity to represent the West Virginia Republican Party and our interests in this matter. As I have said many times, the Republican voters in West Virginia and across the country will decide our Presidential nominee — not far-left special interests. I am grateful for the professionalism of the judges who handled this case, and I appreciate the work of the American Center for Law and Justice and the legal teams for President Trump, Secretary Warner, and Attorney General Morrisey,” said Elgine McArdle, Chairwoman of the West Virginia Republican Party.

“President Trump achieved a lot as President. He secured the border, made America energy independent, respected the police and military, cut taxes, and grew the economy. Perhaps his most important achievement was appointing judges and Supreme Court Justices who are committed to applying the law as it is written and who respect the Constitution and our American values. Voters in West Virginia and across the country deserve the right to reward him for this record by way of their vote in 2024.”

“Sadly, for the past year, President Trump has weathered four bogus indictments, numerous frivolous ballot access challenges across the country, and a weaponized Department of Justice that continues to harass and intimidate President Trump and his associates for their work to Make America Great Again. Despite all these efforts by the Left, President Trump has a clear and consistent polling lead against President Biden. Americans are hungry for real change and crave a return to a time when America’s values were respected and our homeland secure. Their attempts to subvert the ballot and law in West Virginia have failed, and I am looking forward to welcoming President Trump when he visits West Virginia in this campaign.”
