CHARLESTON, W.Va. —U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito has a challenger in this year’s West Virginia Republican primary.
Delegate Jonathan Miller of Berkeley County filed Tuesday to run in the 2nd Congressional District.
Freshman Rep. David McKinley also filed Tuesday. The Ohio County Republican is seeking another term representing the 1st District.
West Virginia’s recently redrawn congressional districts remain the subject of a federal court challenge. But the U.S. Supreme Court has allowed this year’s elections to rely on the new redistricting map pending an appeal.
Presidential candidate Ron Paul also added his name to West Virginia’s Republican primary ballot.
Others filing Tuesday include Republican Mike Teets. The lifelong Hardy County farmer is running for agriculture commissioner. Teets came close in 2008, winning 47 percent of the vote for that office.
