CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito is vowing to run for the U.S. Senate seat held by Jay Rockefeller in 2014.
The 2nd District Republican announced her campaign plans Monday at the state Capitol.
Rockefeller, a five-term Democrat, says Capito called him last week and told him of her plans.
The 75-year-old Rockefeller did not say whether he plans to run in 2014. He and the state Democratic Party's chairman instead referred to how West Virginians have gone through seven elections in less than three years. Rockefeller said he's focusing on the federal budget and other pressing issues.
Capito won her seventh term on Nov. 6. The former state legislator chairs the House Financial Services subcommittee.
