CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Riley Moore, Republican candidate for State Treasurer, has taken the lead over career politician John Perdue in the State Treasurer’s race according to Moore’s campaign polling. The Moore campaign released results of a poll it commissioned which has Riley Moore receiving 45% of registered voters compared to 43% for John Perdue. The balance was undecided.
“Our campaign is surging while John Perdue is hemorrhaging support left and right,” said Riley Moore. “Despite John Perdue having spent nearly the last half century in government offices and despite him raising hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign cash from special interests, West Virginia voters are clearly fed up with his good ole’ boy political games where only his cronies and political supporters benefit,” he said.
Moore said he believes the West Virginia State Treasurer’s Office needs more transparency and accountability to better represent the values of all West Virginians. Moore promises to bring new conservative ideas to the Treasurer’s office that will modernize and improve the office.
“John Perdue is out of touch with West Virginians. He has supported liberals like Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and now Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. He supports all of the people who turned their backs on the hardworking men and women of our state,” said Moore.
The poll was conducted for his campaign during the week of October 12th and surveyed 504 West Virginia voters by telephone and had a margin of error of +/-4%. The poll was conducted by Mark Blankenship Enterprises.
Riley Moore is a conservative running for West Virginia State Treasurer. Moore supports Donald Trump for President while John Perdue supports Joe Biden.
Moore is from Harpers Ferry, West Virginia where he resides with his wife Mina and two daughters.
