Former West Virginia County Commissioner Hopes to be Elected to Legislature this Year as an Independent

Brenda Hutchinson has qualified for the ballot as an independent candidate for the West Virginia House of Delegates in district 58. See this story in the Cumberland Times-News, which is a Maryland newspaper that covers the eastern panhandle of West Virginia. She was a Morgan County Commissioner 2006-2012. She changed her registration from “Democrat” to “independent” earlier this year. She is the only opponent to the Republican incumbent.

No one, other than Democratic and Republican nominees, has been elected to the West Virginia legislature since 1906, when the Prohibition Party elected a member of the lower house of the legislature.
