Race for W.Va. governor: Democrats differ on tobacco taxes, abortion
Click here for WV Democratic primary candidates' answers to 10 WV Gazette qustions. South Charleston landlord Arne Moltis did not participate.

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Democrats in the special primary election for governor agree that West Virginia needs to do more to attract teachers and diversify its economy, but they differ on issues such as abortion and whether the state should raise its tobacco tax.

Five out of six candidates in the May 14 Democratic primary responded to the Gazette-Mail's candidate questionnaire, which asks about issues including education, health care and the economy.

Democratic candidates who responded to the questionnaire were: acting Senate president Jeff Kessler; state Treasurer John Perdue; Secretary of State Natalie Tennant; House Speaker Rick Thompson; and Senate President Earl Ray Tomblin, who is acting as governor.
