One thing was clear after the results from Tuesday's primary started to roll in: West Virginia's teachers remembered who was on their side during their strike earlier this year.
One notable example was State Senator Richard Ojeda, who won the Democratic Nomination for West Virginia's 3rd Congressional District tuesday night.

Ojeda became popular with state teachers for backing their efforts to win better pay and health benefits. Teachers ultimately won a 5 percent pay increase after a nine-day strike, and their success ignited similar teacher walkouts in other states.
