Sue Thorn, an organizer for the Obama ‘08 campaign, wants to represent West Virginia in the U.S. Congress, from a seat won by the Republicans last year. For now, she’s running for the Democratic nomination, and she’s looking a lot like another rookie candidate with Obama ties. From Ms. Thorn’s website:
Former West Virginia Congressman Harley Staggers, Jr. is enthused about Thorn’s congressional race. “I have been watching coverage of Elizabeth Warren’s Senate campaign in Massachusetts and when I first talked with Sue, I saw the same traits in her that I saw in Warren. Both are from working class families and understand the struggles facing families throughout the country. I think people are excited to support a real Democrat who will fight for working people,” stated Staggers.
Ms. Thorn makes her official announcement on Wednesday. Back story here.
