CHARLESTON (AP) — The race to fill U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito’s congressional seat has drawn two more candidates.
Democrat Nick Casey and Republican Charlotte Lane filed with the Secretary of State’s Office on Monday to run for Capito’s 2nd District House seat.
Capito has announced plans to run for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by the retiring Jay Rockefeller. She has not yet filed.
Casey is a former chairman of the West Virginia Democratic Party. Lane is a former state delegate and a former member of the state Public Service Commission and the International Trade Commission.
Republicans Alex Mooney and Jim Moss filed last week to run for the 2nd District seat.
Republican incumbent Rep. David McKinley filed last week to run for re-election in the 1st District.
