The event is scheduled for 4-5 p.m., at 740 Main St. in Chapmanville.
“I enjoy meeting with voters all over our great state, but it’s always special to be close to home,” Tomblin said. “I appreciate all the support I’ve gotten from Logan County residents over the years, and I know that will be the case again this year. The election is just for an office a little higher on the ticket.”
The West Virginia Democratic Party has opened offices at a number of locations around the state in advance of the Oct. 4 special election for governor. Because of the unusual nature and date of the election, many people expect turnout to be lower than usual.
“It’s always important for our supporters to get out and vote, but that’s never been more critical than in this special election,” Tomblin said. “We have an opportunity to continue the progress we’ve made in our state, creating more jobs, responsibly lowering taxes and fighting for our state’s coal industry.”
Tomblin has received the endorsements of a diverse number of important groups around West Virginia. The growing lists includes the West Virginia AFL-CIO, West Virginia Chamber of Commerce, NRA, West Virginia Education Association, West Virginia Federation of Teachers, WV Coal Association, WV State Building and Construction Trades Council, Teamsters Local 175, Charleston Regional Chamber of Commerce, HuntPAC (Huntington Chamber of Commerce), Mid-Atlantic Regional Council of Carpenters Local 476, Mid-Atlantic Regional Council of Carpenters Local 604, Professional Fire Fighters of WV, West Virginia Sheriffs Association, Fraternal Order of Police, Deputy Sheriffs Association, United Steelworkers Locals 1190, 1223, 1238 and 4195, and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 246.
“The most important support is yours, however,” Tomblin said to voters. “And if you’re not sure how to remember the date of the election, think of it this way: It’s 10-4, Good Buddy!”
