In the West Virginia Democrat primary, Obama was challenged by a prisoner from Texas and managed a significant victory of 20 points. Democratic strategists see these results as proof that Obama is regaining the momentum of 2008. Like the reports on the economy and jobs, news that can be spun with a positive view is vital to the Obama campaign.
Obama's latest challenger, inmate Keith Judd, put up a valiant effort from the Federal Correctional Institution in Texas for the Democrat Presidential bid. Unfortunately, Judd has been serving time since 1999 for making threats at the University of New Mexico, but despite his apparent disadvantage, he managed to control 40% of votes cast and Obama tallied less than 60% for his first major victory of the 2012 campaign.
Judd ran with a skeleton campaign group, actually it is questionable whether he had any support; he managed to get on the ballot with a $2500 filing fee, a form known as a notarized certification of announcement.

Run, Keith, run!
This guy actually won 10 WV counties. The media is reporting 8 but it is 10. He also carried 41% of the Democrat vote.
I suspect that if I’d put one of my dogs on the ballot he’d have done just about as well against the Illegal. In all seriousness, I’d gladly vote for either rather than the Illegal.
So, this guy got a greater portion of the vote than the Union-backed candidate in the Wisconsin Democrat Recall Primary. Not bad.
I would vote for him over either Romney or Obama. He’s not Establishment.
It’s too bad that no non-incarcerated West Virginia Democrat got himself on the ballot—some former legislator or mayor or businessman. A person like that might have actually gotten more votes than Obama.
