The Republican party met on August 23, 2010 and instead nominated Philip Stevens as their candidate for the ballot at the general election. Shott had withdrawn his nomination to the West Virginia House of Delegates District 24, in anticipation of accepting the nomination for the West Virginia State Senate District 10 seat. As a result, Shott did not run for any seat in the House of Delegates or the Senate that year.[7][8][9][10][11]
