Some WV Democrats skip National Convention
The Democratic National Convention is underway, but there are some West Virginia Democrats absent. Third District Congressman Nick Rahall, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin and Governor Earl Ray Tomblin aren't there, but U.S. Senator Jay Rockefeller is scheduled to be in Charlotte. The convention continues today, and President Barack Obama is expected to accept the Democratic nomination for President Thursday. The Republican National Convention happened last week, and Mitt Romney accepted the Republican nomination for President.
