CHARLESTON (AP) — Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin has attracted another $124,800 as he seeks a full term as West Virginia’s chief executive.
The final batch of donations brought Tomblin’s fundraising total to $1.1 million ahead of the May 8 Democratic primary.
Tomblin faces Arne Moltis. The political newcomer has reported raising no funds.
Republican Bill Maloney is seeking a general-election rematch with Tomblin. The Morgantown businessman has raised $341,000, including just under $36,000 during the filing period.
But Maloney first faces a GOP primary challenge from Ralph William Clark. Clark has loaned his campaign $10,000.
Tomblin had a $950,000 campaign balance as of April 22. Maloney had $271,215 on hand.
Maloney narrowly lost to Tomblin in last year’s special election for completing the term left by now-U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin.
