Texas jailbird steals 40% of votes in W.Va. prez primary5/9/2012
When you read a headline that says "Federal inmate makes a strong showing," you assume the second part will be "in parole hearing" or "in cafeteria fight," not "in primary election." Yesterday in West Virginia, Keith Judd -- who's incarcerated in Texas -- finished with 40 percent of the vote in the state's presidential primary. President Obama's approval rating in West Virginia is only 32.7 percent, the fifth lowest in the country, possibly due to the impact his energy policies have had on the state's coal industry. "Keith Judd's performance is embarrassing for Obama and our great state," West Virginia GOP chairman Mike Stuart said.
