“Our state was mentioned again on national news around the world for the wrong reasons. The fact that he was an elected official only added to that. It’s not about being a Democratic or Republican member of the legislature, it’s about being a West Virginian who has embarrassed our entire state, ”said Doug Skaff Jr., Minority Leader (D) of West Virginia House of Delegates.

West Virginia Governor Jim Justice will elect a replacement for Evans’ vacant seat.
