Maloney Working To Court Conservatives

"West Virginia lawmakers continue to kick our problems down the road," Maloney said in the release. "We need real leadership. We need fiscal discipline and responsible government. It's time for real-world experience in Charleston, not more politics as usual." Maloney also has the ability to put some of his personal wealth into the race. "Republicans should expect that we will have a fully funded campaign," said Dabrowski. He's received some local buzz: the Charleston Gazette has written about his candidacy and he's appeared on Hoppy Kercheval's Talkline radio show. Craig Hammond, the Bluefield radio host who was involved in starting the "Draft John Raese for Governor" effort, hasn't gotten behind another candidate yet, and says he likes things about many Republican candidates in the race. He's never met Maloney nor had he hear about him before he announced his bid. "But what little I do know I like," said Hammond. "I'm looking forward to meeting him. He seems to be a conservative as far as things go here in West Virginia." Maloney has drawn the top slot on the primary ballot, which could be a helpful factor. But the primary is May 14, giving a previously unknown candidate like Maloney just a few months to get his name and message out to voters.
