The Mountain Party of West Virginia is an enigma. Having received 4% of the vote in the 2008 elections, the Mountain Party has received official ballot status. This means that its candidates will automatically be granted permission to take part in elections in 2010, a great boon. And yet the party hasn’t released a newsletter since March of 2008, hasn’t sent out a press release since October of 2008, and hasn’t updated its calendar with any events since Election Day 2008.
The Mountain Party has seized the microphone in the state of West Virginia and the amplifier is still turned on. Does it have anything to say?
