Oliverio Beats Mollohan (Updated)

U.S. Rep. Alan Mollohan, D-1st, lost West Virginia's Democratic primary to state Sen. Mike Oliverio, D-Monongalia, The Associated Press reports.

With 75 percent of precincts reporting, Oliverio had 56.2 percent to Mollohan's 43.7 percent.

Update: AP pegged Oliverio's final tally at nearly 56 percent of the vote. He did nearly that well in Mollohan's home turf of Marion County, while attracting 62 percent in Monongalia.
