BECKLEY, W.Va. — Education, jobs, opioid recovery and infrastructure are key issues facing West Virginia, candidates in the national and state races said Thursday morning.

Around 375 guests attended the annual “Meet the Candidates” breakfast at the Raleigh Convention Center, hosted by the Beckley-Raleigh County Chamber of Commerce.

Among them were United States Sen. Joe Manchin and challenger, West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey. Manchin, a former state governor, told organizers on Tuesday that he would leave Washington in order to attend the breakfast in Raleigh County, his wife’s home county. Morrisey, who resides in Jefferson County, committed to attending hours after Manchin had agreed to attend, event organizers reported Thursday.
