CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - West
Virginia's May 13 primary slate is official and will have several contested
races on the federal level.
Secretary of State Natalie Tennant
certified the primary election's candidates earlier this month.
U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall in the 3rd
District is the lone incumbent in Congress facing a primary opponent.
Second District Rep. Shelley Moore
Capito will face two other candidates in the Republican primary for the U.S.
Senate seat being vacated by retiring Democrat Jay Rockefeller, while Tennant
is running on the Democratic side and will have two opponents.
Seven Republicans and two Democrats
are seeking Capito's congressional seat. First District Republican Rep. David
McKinley is running unopposed.
Half of the 34-member state Senate and
all 100 seats in the House of Delegates are up this year.
