W.Va. businessman to challenge Sen. Rockefeller

January 30, 2008

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) -- Another challenger has come forward to try to unseat U.S. Sen. Jay Rockefeller.

Phil Cline, general manager of the Pullman Plaza Hotel in Huntington, mailed his candidacy form to the Secretary of State's office on Saturday.

The 74-year-old Cline says his campaign will focus on continuing the economic gains the nation has made under President Bush by making his tax cuts permanent.

Cline is one of two Republicans who've filed for the Senate seat. The other is Jay Wolfe, a former state senator from Harrison County who ran unsuccessfully against Rockefeller in 2002.

Rockefeller, who is running for his fifth term, has two opponents in the Democratic Primary: Sheirl L. Fletcher of Monongalia County and Billy Hendricks Jr. of Boone County.
