CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A Monongalia County state delegate who won his Republican primary unopposed is no longer seeking re-election.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports (https://bit.ly/1XpikBO ) that Delegate Brian Kurcaba cited family reasons for why he won’t seek a second term in the House of Delegates.

The Morgantown lawmaker said that in the long term, he can’t shoulder the 60-day session, special sessions, a full-time job and leading a family.

Kurcaba was elected to the House in 2014. He was among five Republicans in the 51st District who were unopposed in the May primary. Republicans will face five Democrats for five 51st District seats in November.

He said he will continue serving his term through December.

The Monongalia County Republican Executive Committee plans to pick a fifth GOP candidate to replace Kurcaba on the ballot.
