"Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean says Democrats want to retake West Virginia.
West Virginia voted for President Bush in 2000 and again in 2004 even though Republicans are outnumbered nearly 2-to-1 by the state's 680,000 Democrats.
Dean was scheduled to visit West Virginia Wednesday to participate in a rally and cookout at the state Democratic Party headquarters beginning at 11 a.m. Gov. Joe Manchin also will participate in the event. The visit is part of a 50-state tour to announce grass-roots organizing efforts across the country. The former presidential candidate has said that the national party will invest almost $500,000 in state parties in Missouri, North Carolina, North Dakota and West Virginia.
In West Virginia, the Democratic National Committee will provide $174,000 a year through 2008 to have full-time organizers in West Virginia."-from the AP story today.
