Election 2008 Shorts

  • Gov. Joe Manchin tells MetroNews' Talkline that he's sticking with his plan to "wait until Friday to announce which Democratic Presidential Candidate he'll support as one of West Virginia's ten superdelegates." With audio.
  • The Charleston Daily Mail reports on efforts by Ralph Nader supporters to offer their candidate to Mountain State voters. "Staff and volunteers for the independent candidate have collected more than half of the signatures required in the state to put Nader on the general election ballot," the newspaper reports.
  • The Parkersburg Register revisits one of the more unusual outcomes from the May 13 state primary. "The Democratic Primary for the West Virginia House of Delegates 10th District became a statistical oddity with the third-place tie between Iris McCrady and Tim Fittro; an oddity that Wood County Clerk Jaime Six would like to see studied," that newspaper reports.
  • (Update) The Associated Press offers separate highlights of post-primary campaign finance disclosures by the Supreme Court candidates and those in other major statewide races.
