CHARLESTON -- One more candidate has joined the list of those looking to join the state Supreme Court.

New Martinsville attorney H. John "Buck" Rogers apparently mailed in his filing papers, according to the West Virginia Secretary of State's office. His filing was added Monday.

Rogers is a Democrat.

Saturday was the final day candidates could file papers, but those postmarked by midnight Saturday still met the deadline.

The primary election is May 8, and the general election is Nov. 6.

On Saturday, current state Supreme Court law clerk Louis Palmer joined the field of Democratic candidates for the Court. He joins fellow Democrats - current Justice Robin Jean Davis, circuit judges J.D. Beane and Jim Rowe and Charleston attorney Letitia "Tish" Chafin - in the primary race for two spots on the bench.

Circuit Judge John Yoder and current Supreme Court law clerk Allen Loughry are running on the Republican side.
