West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice has appointed state Sen. Mike Hall as his new chief of staff.

Justice says in a news release that the Putnam County Republican "has a reputation for being able to work with everybody."

West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice says Nick Casey is no longer his chief of staff.

Justice issued a statement Monday announcing Casey's departure and said he wished more had been accomplished during the legislative session. Justice said he had "given this a lot of thought and going forward I just didn't see any pathway where it would work out."
