West Virginia Will Pick a Governor in October


This is interesting: West Virginia will hold its special election for governor one month before the other three gubernatorial elections this year, October 4:

West Virginia would elect a governor Oct. 4 after nominating candidates in a May 14 primary, after the Legislature passed a measure Thursday setting up its timetable. The House of Delegates unanimously approved a compromise bill that emerged from the Senate on Wednesday, also on a unanimous vote. Acting Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin welcomed the measure’s final passage, and intends to sign it.
