WV election spending? "A ton of ads"

I wish they would have just sent me the $9.50

Ohio Valley Resources cites the Center for Public Integrity in reporting what most of us already knew about political advertising in the state this year:

“There’s been a ton of ads in West Virginia,” said data reporter Ben Wieder at the Center for Public Integrity, a nonprofit journalism outlet.

The Center analyzed TV ads in . . .

Exit polls on the West Virginia Democratic presidential primary

Some interesting questions

Will Trump win big in West Virginia in November? It would appear so. From the ABC News exit poll:

West Virginia Democratic voters were among least liberal so far this year; fewer than half said they were liberals, vs. an average of 62 percent in previous Democratic contests. And in one last notable result, about a third in . . .

Trump urges WV supporters to stay home next Tuesday

I'm sure that will not make him popular with anti-McGraw Republicans

As Time magazine and a number of other sources noted earlier today:

Donald Trump pulled out all the stops courting coal miners in West Virginia Thursday night, but he told them to skip voting in the primary.
