MORGAN COUNTY, WV (LOOTPRESS) – Senator Charles Trump (R-Morgan) has his intentions set on running for the West Virginia Supreme Court in 2024.
Senator Trump, current chair of the Senate Judiciary, Education, and Rules Committees, has served in the West Virginia State Senate since 2014. He was elected the same year Republicans took control of both chambers for the first time in decades.
Trump served in the West Virginia House of Delegates from 1992 until 2006, serving as minority whip from 1994 until 1998 and minority leader from 1998 until 2006. Trump was also a member of the Electoral College in 2000 for George W. Bush.
Sen. Trump’s plans come less than a day after Justice John Hutchinson announced that he would be retiring at the conclusion of his term on December 31, 2024.
He is set to officially announce his intentions later this morning.
No other individuals have publicly announced their intentions to run for the West Virginia Supreme Court in 2024 at the time of this writing.
