CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Democrat Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin said he – like Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va. – does not know if he will vote for President Barack Obama or Republican Mitt Romney in the fall.

“I do not believe that either candidate has a real understanding of what is important to West Virginia,” Tomblin said Tuesday.

Tomblin said in statement released by his campaign that he was a “loyal member of the Democratic Party” but was concerned by fellow Democrat Obama’s “misguided policies.” […]

Tomblin is not alone in his indecision.

Manchin, who is by far the state’s most popular politician, said late last month that he did not know whether he would vote for Obama or for Romney.

“I am just waiting for it to play out. I am not jumping in one way or another,” Manchin told the National Journal. “I’m worried about me. I’ve said it’s not a team sport. You need to go out and work for yourself.”
