Will Ballot Positions Matter In West Virginia?

The gubernatorial field is set following Saturday's filing deadline. No huge surprises were on display as the deadline arrived. Acting state Senate Pres. Jeff Kessler (D) filed on Saturday and state Treasurer John Perdue (D) announced his campaign on Friday. Given the crowded field and lack of polling on the race thus far, the primaries could be close, and even factors at the margin -- like ballot positioning -- may matter. The West Virginia Secretary of State's office has the full ballot position list here. As my colleague Julie Sobel has reported, the primary will take place May 14 with the general election is set for Oct. 4.
