Candidates are already lining up for a shot at representing West Virginia in Congress, but part of the 2014 ballot still has gaps for both parties.
All three of the state's U.S. House seats are up next year. U.S. Sen. Jay Rockefeller, a Democrat, is retiring instead of attempting a sixth term.
U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito is seeking Rockefeller's seat. Two other Republicans have also filed with the Federal Election Commission. But no one from Rockefeller's party has.
Capito has kept her 2nd District seat in the GOP column since 2000. The opening has attracted at least three Democrats. The latest is Del. Meshea Poore of Kanawha County.
Republican U.S. Rep. David McKinley and Democratic U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall continue to stand unopposed, according to the latest FEC filings.
