As the state Senate's president, Tomblin has been acting as governor under the West Virginia Constitution's succession provision since Manchin resigned Nov. 15. Tomblin's conclusion that the next election would not be until 2012, when the office is already on the ballot for a full four-year term, prompted legal challenges.

The state's Supreme Court responded by mandating that an elected governor take office within a year of Manchin's departure which ruined a perfectly planned power grab by the Democrats.

Maloney has campaigned as a conservative Republican and successful businessman. The 52-year-old Morgantown drilling consultant and energy company owner helped develop the plan that freed 33 Chilean miners trapped for 69 days after a mine collapse last year.

He said his passion for West Virginia prompted his first run at elected office.

"I saw the same passion among voters," Maloney told the AP Saturday. "Our message really resonated on the campaign trail, and that was wonderful to see."

WV has been a dye hard Democratic state for decades.
Manchin being a Democratic with conservative views was the only governor in decades who has helped WV.
He lowered the food tax and created 16,000 jobs for WV. He is also against Cap and Trade. Manchin is not afraid to cross party lines., and has stated so.

I think WV will hear more from their junior senator.
