MINERAL WELLS — It started as a town hall for Gov. Jim Justice to build GOP unity behind his re-election bid.

He criticized those who malign him for “not being Republican enough.” He called on them not to cast stones.

He then proceeded to bash the Senate president for his charge to bring charter schools and education savings accounts into West Virginia, which he compared to “causing a ruckus” and throwing a Hail Mary.


“I have pleaded with our Senate president saying, ‘Listen, you are imploding yourself,’” Justice said. “‘You are imploding the Senate.’”
