Thompson Up With First TV Ad In West Virginia

Polling on the Democratic primary has been sparse so far; an internal poll conducted by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research (D) for Secretary of State Natalie Tennant's (D) campaign this month showed acting Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin (D) in first place, narrowly leading Tennant 31 to 27 percent. Thompson lags in the single digits in fourth place, with Treasurer John Perdue running third. Also in single digits is acting state Senate pres. Jeff Kessler (D). A January survey from the Democratic robopolling firm Public Policy Polling showed similar findings. Thompson has recently scooped up some key labor endorsements, including the WV AFL-CIO, United Mine Workers, and the two major teachers unions, but whether they will be enough to catapult him into a competitive race with Tennant and Tomblin remains to be seen. With about a month and a half to go until the primary and the state legislative session over, the race is just starting to heat up. Campaign finance reports are due Friday, and Tomblin has announced his campaign raised over $1 million.
