CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito is officially in the race for U.S. Senate.

Capito filed her candidacy papers Thursday with the Secretary of State's Office. The seven-term Republican is seeking to fill the Senate seat being vacated by the retiring Jay Rockefeller.

Another Republican, Larry Eugene Butcher of Washington in Wood County, also filed Thursday to run for the U.S. Senate.

Williamstown Democrat David Walmsley and Parkersburg Republican Matthew Dodrill, filed to run for the seat last week.

Four Republicans and two Democrats have filed to run for Capito's House seat in the 2nd District.

State Auditor and Democrat Glen Gainer III filed papers on Tuesday to run for the House in the 1st District. Incumbent Republican Rep. David McKinley filed last week to run for re-election.
