A Southern West Virginia delegate announced Thursday, Jan. 4 a run for Congress.

Marty Gearheart (R-Mercer, 27) has represented Mercer County in the West Virginia legislature since 2010.

This past year he made headlines as being an opponent to the road bond referendum while also serving as the House Transportation Chair.

The third district race is quite crowded. That seat is currently held by Evan Jenkinsm who is running for U.S. Senate.
