CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Democratic West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin says he won't attend the party's national convention, citing serious problems with President Barack Obama.
A Tomblin spokesman, Chris Stadelman, said Monday that the governor has serious problems with Republican Mitt Romney, too.
Tomblin is an automatic superdelegate to the Democratic National Convention. He says his time is best spent working in West Virginia, not attending the four-day political rally in Charlotte, N.C.
In West Virginia's presidential primary, Tomblin refused to say whether he voted for Obama.
Tomlbin isn't alone in sitting this one out - West Virginia's Sen. Joe Manchin and congressman Nick Rahall say they don't plan to attend the convention, either.
Each of the three faces a Republican opponent in November.
