Tennant re-elected W.Va. Secretary of State


CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginia Secretary of State Natalie Tennant has won a second term in office.

The Democrat defeated freshman Delegate Brian Savilla of Putnam County on Tuesday.

The Republican Savilla had pushed to require voters to show a valid ID before voting. He also had criticized Tennant's handling of her election-related duties.

Tennant is a former broadcaster who campaigned on her efforts to bring the office's business filing and licensing services online. She also touted that her office had overseen seven elections in less than three years, including special elections for governor and U.S. Senate.
