He will become the State Liaison with the NRA. His resignation takes effect Jan. 3, 2016.

Hall, who was first elected to the West Virginia State Senate in 2012, gave the GOP an 18-16 advantage when he switched political parties after the 2014 election.

In a statement released Tuesday Hall said:

“The last nearly eight years I’ve spent serving the citizens of southern West Virginia have been eight of the best years of my life,” he said. “It’s with mixed emotions that I leave to take this job, but I am excited about helping the NRA continue to advance Second Amendment rights for not just West Virginians, but for all Americans.”

Hall leaves his role as the Senate Majority Whip and chairman of the Agriculture and Rural Development Committee and Labor Committee. While in the Senate, he helped launch the state’s chapter for the National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses.

Prior to his time in the Senate, Hall said was a member of the House of Delegates for two terms.

“While I hate to see Daniel go, I’m very excited for this new and exciting opportunity for him, and I know he will be a wonderful representative for the NRA,” said Senate President and gubernatorial candidate Bill Cole (R-Mercer, 06) in a news release. “Daniel is a tireless worker and a passionate advocate for the causes in which he so deeply believes, and I am certain he will be successful in his new role.”
