Governor Jim Justice responds to Richard Ojeda running for President in 2020

LEWISBURG, WV (WOAY) – As the midterm elections wrap up, candidates are gearing up for the 2020 election.

Senator Richard Ojeda recently made his announcement that he will be running for President of The United States in the upcoming election. Most recently Governor Jim Justice responds to Ojeda’s announcement.

The Governor says it’s the craziest thing he’s seen in his life, “You know the big thing Ojeda needs to be really concerned about?  I don’t think he won his home district precinct.  Justice continues, to go out and say you are going to run for President of United States, really? Again, I respect with all of my soul and his service to his county,  it’s really good. But let’s get real, and get away from theatrics, and let’s get on with life.  But I think it’s one of silliest things I’ve ever seen,” Justice adds.

This is shaping up the be quite the Presidential race.
