Items that drifted in overnight:
* LIBERTARIAN CANDIDATE
: Bobby Tullis,
a former state representative from Mineral Springs, says he'll seek the Libertarian Party nomination to run for state treasurer. He got 32 percent of the vote as a Green candidate for the office in 2010 against incumbent Democrat Martha Shoffner, who's since resigned. A couple of Republicans, Dennis Milligan and Duncan Baird, have declared for the race.
