Ross to Succeed Proudfoot?

The Charleston Gazette predicts as much. Among other factors it counts as favoring former lawmaker Mike Ross, D-Randolph, is how he edged out state Republican Sen. Clark Barnes by 457 votes in their home county while losing their November rematch in the 15th District.

The InterMountain of Elkins and the Charleston Daily Mail reported earlier on Wednesday's deadline for a multi-county district committee to recommend names to Gov. Joe Manchin for a successor to Delegate Bill Proudfoot. The Randolph County Democrat was killed in an auto accident two days before Christmas.
