Sec. of State Natalie Tennant to Run for US Senate
West Virginia Secretary of State Natalie Tennant is running for Democrat Jay Rockefeller's seat in the U.S. Senate. Tennant confirmed her plans to The Associated Press Monday, a day ahead of planned announcements in Beckley, Charleston and Morgantown. Her candidacy sets up the possibility of a high-profile battle with popular seven-term Republican U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito, who has also announced her intentions to run. If each candidate wins her respective primary, West Virginia voters could elect a woman senator for the first time.
