The Harrison County lawmaker announced his bid for secretary of state Tuesday.

Trecost was elected to his first term as a delegate in 2014. He was previously the mayor and a city council member in Clarksburg.

Tennant was first elected in 2008 and won re-election in 2012. She is seeking a third term after losing a 2014 bid for U.S. Senate.

Morgantown Republican Mac Warner is also seeking the four-year office.
