CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice is bringing a close to one avenue for his quirky speeches with his final State of the State address. He delivered the speech Wednesday night. The popular two-term Republican governor is running for Democrat Joe Manchin’s U.S. Senate seat in November. The 6-foot-7 Justice will leave big shoes to fill — literally and metaphorically. He has always put on a show never seen before under the Capitol dome. He’s said West Virginia is on an economic “rocket ship ride” and called himself a frog who’s proud of his pond.
