Political newcomer Aaron Scheinberg recently announced his run for Congress in the 2018 election, challenging current Republican congressman Alex Mooney for the state’s second congressional district.
Scheinberg, running as a Democratic nominee, said he lives with his wife and daughter in a home his grandfather built in Hedgesville. Born in New Jersey, Scheinberg was raised in both New Jersey and West Virginia. Learning to drive on Rt. 9, growing up hunting in the Sleepy Creek area and learning the value of hard work are lessons Scheinberg has shaped his adult life.
