Steve Williams, the mayor of Huntington, has officially thrown his hat into the ring in the race for Governor as a Democrat.
He has been mayor for eleven years and believes that his record as mayor more than qualifies him for the office of governor.
“I’m running for Governor because I believe the best of West Virginia is yet to come. From revitalizing Huntington’s economy to combating the opioid crisis with innovative solutions, my track record speaks for itself,” Williams said.
He joins the race as the only Democratic candidate that has officially announced so far, potentially facing off against the Republican that emerges from a crowded primary.
