CRAWLEY, WV (WVNS) — A former West Virginia State Trooper announced his candidacy for State Senate for the 10th District.
Republican Vince Deeds will look to unseat current Senator Stephen Baldwin (D) – WV. Deeds made the announcement at the Greenbrier GOP “Great American Comeback Cookout Fundraiser” in Crawley, WV on Saturday, July 24, 2021. Around 800 people were in attendance.
Deeds served as a State Trooper for 25 years and currently works as the Chief Investigator for the Greenbrier County Prosecutor’s Office.
