CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- West Virginia Republicans say their presidential nomination process, which is expected to end earlier than other states, is likely to impact the West Coast.
The state's nominating convention, which is scheduled for Feb. 5, is expected to result in the state announcing a victor earlier in the day than other states -- possibly as early as 11:30 a.m. on the West Coast, The Hill reported Thursday.
"I believe it can have a big impact," said Robert Fish, chief executive of the West Virginia Republican Presidential Convention. "This can give a winning characteristic to one of the campaigns."
