Convict Recieves 40% of DEM Presidential Votes in WVA Primary
As we mentioned earlier, North Carolina was not the only state to hold Primary Elections yesterday. West Virginia also held their primary elections and Democratic voters made an interesting statement. More than 40 percent of Democrats voting chose to cast their ballot for Keith Russell Judd, an inmate at the Beaumont Federal Correctional Institution in Beaumont, Texas, where he’s doing time for extortion and threats made at the University of New Mexico in 1999. Judd scored 42.28 percent of the vote — or 49,490 votes — compared with President Obama with 57.72 percent, or 67,562, according to unofficial state results. Neither Mr. Obama nor Mr. Judd – who is in prison – physically campaigned in the state. The Obama campaign says Mr. Judd will not be awarded any delegates. The president won more votes than the winner of the GOP primary. Mitt Romney, who scored 51,470 votes. Here locally, Obama didnt see much more favor in voter's eyes. 21% and close to 200,000 Democratic voters in the Tar Heel State cast their vote for no preference over having Obama as their President.
