Clarity Coming on Byrd Succession

West Virginia’s Secretary of State’s office tells NBC News that it will be releasing a statement this afternoon to make sense of the state’s very confusing succession law.

Early speculation, however, is that that the election for the seat won’t occur until 2012. An interim senator appointed by West Virginia Gov. Joe Manchin (D) would serve until then.

The Hotline has a good backgrounder on the succession law which supports this theory.
