His last day as a representative will be Sunday, September 30, 2018. He will be sworn in as a WV State Supreme Court Justice on Monday, October 1, 2018.

Jenkins went on to say: “I’ve been blessed these last four years to represent West Virginia’s 3rd Congressional District, but now country roads are calling me home.
