And with 9th District Republican Sue Cline was sworn in as West Virginia’s newest State Senator.
Cline replaces Senator Daniel Hall who was first elected as a Democrat, but resigned after switching to the Republican side. Both parties claimed the seat and it took a State Supreme Court decision Friday to give the seat to Republicans.
“Now we can get on with the business at hand. We face so much this year in the state with issues with the budget. It’s time we get to work,”State Sen. Bill Cole, (R) Senate President said.
Republicans now have enough votes to overturn a promised veto from the Governor on Right-to-Work legislation.
