List of Not-for-Sale Candidates

Not-For-Sale Candidate List

The only way we’ll get the kind of government we deserve is if we take it.  More than 40 candidates who signed the WV Can’t Wait candidate pledge have won their primary or won their race outright—and we are still adding more candidates!

The more of us who stick together, the more hardworking West Virginians will win.

Now that you’ve seen the list of pledge signers, search for candidates that YOU can vote for here.

Candidates in BOLD* have also signed on to the People’s Platform, a collection of plans and policy positions, written by West Virginians across the state. The Platform includes 30+ plans to legalize cannabis, empower WV seniors, create jobs, help miners, support workers, improve education, address the addiction epidemic, and much more.


How it works

  • Email for information about how to sign the WV Can’t Wait Candidate Pledge. We’ll get back to you within 10 days with a sample press release, a “I took the WV Can’t Wait Candidate Pledge” seal to put on your website, and some resources.

  • Want your candidate to sign the pledge but don’t see their name? Ask them to pledge to refuse corporate PAC money and email for info about how to sign.

  • This pledge is not an endorsement. It’s a way for candidates to publicly commit to running a campaign on the side of West Virginians–not out-of-state landowners, monopolies, and big banks.

  • We want this to work for you in your race! So it’s up to you how much you associate your campaign with the pledge, or whether you sign on to the platform.

(The list of pledge-signers is updated roughly once monthly, and was last updated on August 23, 2020.)
