CHARLESTON, W.Va.  — The speaker of the West Virginia House of Delegates resigned Tuesday after 20 years, choosing to run in a special election for a seat on the state Supreme Court.

House Speaker Tim Armstead, R-Kanawha, announced his resignation in a statement at noon Tuesday. He filed paperwork Tuesday to run for the special election for the Supreme Court of Appeals Division 1, which is the seat vacated by former justice Menis Ketchum.
