  Former state Delegate Mike Manypenny has opened an early campaign account to run for Congress in northern West Virginia.

On Monday, the Democrat filed paperwork to start raising money to run in the 1st Congressional District.

Republican Congressman David McKinley first won the seat in 2010. If McKinley opts to run for governor, the decision would result in an open congressional race.

Manypenny first won a seat in the House of Delegates in 2008. The former Grafton lawmaker lost his seat in the 2014 general election to Republican Delegate Amy Summers.
