Beth Walker Announces Run for Supreme Court


Morgantown resident Beth Walker says she’ll seek a state Supreme Court seat next year.

Walker made the announcement Thursday in Morgantown. She narrowly lost in the 2008 Supreme Court race while running as a Republican.

Starting next year, judicial and magistrate elections are nonpartisan. The Legislature made the change during this year’s session.

Walker will seek the seat currently held by Justice Brent Benjamin.
