Rep. Alex Mooney is the only announced candidate in the race. Senator Joe Manchin has publicly stated that he is waiting until December to announce his decision.
Rep. Mooney has almost $1.4 million cash on hand and raised more than $500,000 in the first quarter.
Furthermore, the Club for Growth has announced its intention to spend at least $10 million to support Rep. Mooney in the primary (Hoppy Kercheval Show, April 10, 2023).
