One U.S. House race was decided as soon as the candidate list was finalized.

Rep. David McKinley, R-W.Va., had no opponents on the Republican ballot to hold his seat and West Virginia Auditor Glen B. Gainer II was unopposed on the Democratic ticket for the seat.

McKinley, of Wheeling, formerly ran the architecture and engineering company McKinley and Associates.

He served in the West Virginia House of Delegates from 1981-1994 and was chairman of the WV Republican Party Executive Committee in 1990. McKinley unseated long-time Democratic Rep. Alan Mollohan for the seat in 2011.

Gainer, of Parkersburg, has been the state’s auditor since 1993. His current term in that office lasts through 2016.

Gainer’s father served as West Virginia auditor from 1997 to 1993.
