CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginia's May 13 primary slate is official and will have several contested races on the federal level.

Secretary of State Natalie Tennant certified the primary election's candidates earlier this month.

U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall in the 3rd District is the lone incumbent in Congress facing a primary opponent.

Second District Rep. Shelley Moore Capito will face two other candidates in the Republican primary for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by retiring Democrat Jay Rockefeller, while Tennant is running on the Democratic side and will have two opponents.

Seven Republicans and two Democrats are seeking Capito's congressional seat. First District Republican Rep. David McKinley is running unopposed.

Half of the 34-member state Senate and all 100 seats in the House of Delegates are up this year.
