Moore Capito Has Resigned

West Virginia Delegate Moore Capito (R-WV) has officially announced his campaign to serve as the next Governor of West Virginia.

Moore Capito has resigned from the West Virginia House of Delegates to focus solely on the race for governor.

Capito represented the 55th district, encompassing Kanawha County.

He made the announcement in Governor Justice’s weekly briefing, saying that it was an honor to be a delegate.

He said that he thinks West Virginians want continued progress and a conservative leader at the helm of the state.

Recent polling by WMOV radio and American Pulse shows Capito trailing Attorney General Patrick Morrisey by fewer than 8 points.

The next closest candidate is Secretary of State Mac Warner, who has captured 14% of the vote in that poll.

Chris Miller earned 10% of the vote, while 23% of people remain undecided.
