WASHINGTON D.C. (LOOTPRESS) – Republican Congresswoman Carol Miller, who currently represents West Virginia’s Third District, has announced she will run for re-election in 2022.
By virtue of the 2020 Census and West Virginia’s population loss, the state will have just two House of Representatives seats beginning with the 2022 election.
Currently, the state has three House districts, all served by Republicans. The other two incumbents — David McKinley and Alex Mooney — end up in the same district in redistricting approved by the state legislature.
Miller is a former state legislator from Cabell County who has represented the Third Congressional District since 2019.
She represented the 15th district in the West Virginia House of Delegates from 2007 to 2013, and the 16th district from 2013 to 2019.
In winning the seat, she held the position long held by Democrat Nick Joe Rahall and briefly by Republican Evan Jenkins.
Carol Miller is the daughter of the late Republican Congressman Samuel Leeper Devine, who served Ohio’s 12th congressional district from January 3, 1959 until January 3, 1981.
In announcing her re-election plans, Miller said,
“As a business owner, bison farmer, mother, and grandmother, I understand the challenges West Virginia families face. I look forward to continuing to work to bring more opportunity, investment, and good-paying jobs to the Mountain State.”
