Central West Virginia Democrats must think the primary election for Governor is near.
Serving as Marshal of the Grand Feature Parade at the Barbour County Fair this week was House Speaker Richard Thompson (D – Wayne, District 17). The Speaker is known to be interested in running for Governor.
Potential candidates since June worked the crowd at Delegate Mike Ross (D-Randolph) Coalton Days lawn party and appeared at the Friends of Blackwater event in Canaan Valley. Senate President Earl Ray Tomblin (D – Logan, District 7) is slated to crown the Queen at the Mountain State Forest Festival in Elkins.
Over Labor Day weekend I expect likely candidates will be found in Clarksburg at the Italian Festival and in Lewis County at the Arts & Craft event.
Wonder where the potential Republican candidates are appearing?
