WV Gov Joe Manchin Running for Byrd’s Senate Seat

West Virginia Governor Joe Manchin announced this morning that he is making a bid for the late Robert Byrd’s Senate seat. There will be an August 28 primary and a November 2 general election for the vacated seat, and the winner of the election will take over for Carte Goodwin – Manchin’s temporary appointee.

Speculation has it that Republican Representative Shelley Moore Capito could also run for the seat, though the Congresswoman has yet to announce she will make a bid.
