HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — Four candidates vying for West Virginia’s 3rd Congressional District seat fielded questions from Huntington High School seniors Wednesday morning during a 90-minute forum hosted by Huntington’s League of Women Voters.

Participating were Republican candidates Marty Gearheart, a state delegate from Mercer County; Conrad Lucas, former chairman of the West Virginia Republican Party; Rupie Phillips, a state senator from Logan County; and Democratic candidate Paul Davis, head of the Huntington TTA bus service.
