WHEELING, W.Va. — Republicans in the West Virginia Senate representing Northern Panhandle communities indicate they have a strained relationship with Gov. Jim Justice.

Justice, who was elected as a Democrat and later changed parties, also has come under personal scrutiny for his companies not paying taxes owed to West Virginia.
