CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - State Sen. Daniel Hall says he is resigning to take a job with the National Rifle Association.

A news release Tuesday says the Wyoming County Republican will resign Jan. 3 and cover multiple states as an NRA liaison.

Hall served as Senate majority whip.

He was elected to the Senate in 2012 as a Democrat after two terms in the House.

He switched to Republican after the 2014 elections, breaking a 17-17 Senate tie to give the GOP an 18-16 majority.

A local committee will recommend replacements to Democratic Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin, who will pick Hall’s successor.

Hall’s seat is up for re-election in 2016. Democrat Michael Goode is the only candidate with an open campaign account for the seat, which includes Raleigh and Wyoming counties and part of McDowell County.
