CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Roger Hanshaw, R-Clay, has been selected as the Republican House of Delegates’ nominee for Speaker of the House.
The GOP delegates selected Hanshaw, vice chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, in a caucus Tuesday night at the state Capitol.
Speaker Tim Armstead, R-Kanawha, resigned last week to run for an open seat on the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals. He was appointed by Gov. Jim Justice on Saturday to hold a Supreme Court seat until the November general election.
