Charleston, W.V. – Today, U.S. Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) announced that Democratic State Party Chair Larry Puccio will step down as Party Chair to become the Chairman of Manchin’s political action committee – Country Roads PAC.
“From my time as Governor and now to my time in the Senate, Larry has always been a trusted advisor and someone who has always been connected to the political and legislative workings of West Virginia,” Manchin said. “Larry’s years of experience and dedication to the state of West Virginia will allow me to better serve the state as its senior Senator and stay connected to the issues that are affecting them.”
