It was truly an historic election as Donald Trump did the impossible in an upset victory over extreme pro-abortion candidate Hillary Clinton. Many pro-life victories occurred here in West Virginia. All three congressional incumbents retained their seats. In the 1st Congressional District, David McKinley defeated his opponent by a margin of 69-31%. Alex Mooney won in the 2nd Congressional District by 39,602 votes and in the 3rd Congressional District, Evan Jenkins won a second term by 45 percentage points. This completed a pro-life sweep of the entire slate of federal candidates, all of whom were endorsed by West Virginians for Life Political Action Committee (WVL-PAC).

In the six statewide races, the WVL-PAC enjoyed an 83% success rate. Patrick Morrisey won re-election to the Attorney General office ensuring that pro-life legislation will be defended if challenged. Mac Warner upset pro-abortion incumbent Natalie Tennant by a margin of 49-47% for Secretary of State. John McCuskey will be the new State Auditor.
