U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito is officially in the race for the U.S. Senate.
Capito filed her candidacy papers this morning. The seven-term Republican is seeking to fill the Senate seat being vacated by retiring Sen. Jay Rockefeller.
Another Republican, Larry Eugene Butcher of Washington in Wood County, also filed today to run for the U.S. Senate.
Williamstown Democrat David Walmsley and Parkersburg Republican Matthew Dodrill filed to run for the U.S. Senate last week.
