West Virginia Governor, a Democrat, Sitting Out Democrat Convention


According to the AP, West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin – a Democrat – is sitting out the Democrat National Convention this year because he’s unhappy with President Obama. Tomblin isn’t the only West Virginia Democrat who won’t be appearing at the convention, it’s like poison to them.

In West Virginia’s presidential primary, Tomblin refused to say whether he voted for Obama.

Tomlbin isn’t alone in sitting this one out – West Virginia’s Sen. Joe Manchin and congressman Nick Rahall say they don’t plan to attend the convention, either.

Each of the three faces a Republican opponent in November.

Will the Democrats accuse Tomblin, Manchin and Rahall of being racist now, too?

In related news, Obama’s West Virginia problems may be spreading to Pennsylvania.

Update: Politico has more, and Scared Monkeys quipped: “And so it begins, Democrats start running away from Barack Obama in order to get elected.” They do if they know what’s good for them.
