Little Support for Team Mingo’s White Ends Speaker’s Race

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Barring some completely out-of-left field maneuver, it appears the race for the Speaker of the House of Delegates is over.House Finance Chairman Harry Keith White, D-Mingo, announced Friday morning on Hoppy Kercheval’s “Talkline” that he is bowing out of the Speaker race and lending his full support to opponent House Judiciary Chairman Tim Miley, D-Harrison.

“I just don’t think now is the time to create division within the Legislature,” White told Kercheval.

He pointed out the next regular Legislative session will begin in January and there are only 11 months until the next primary election. He said “the numbers are pretty close” in the House, with Republicans making up 46 of the 100 House seats.
