The editorial cartoon in this morning’s Wheeling Intelligencer:
Is there any evidence that dead people voted?
I could find no evidence of even one such occurrence. On Tuesday, the . . .
The WV GOP, AG Morrisey and Governor Justice do their part as Capito and McKinley remain silent
From the West Virginia Republican Party
This fight is not over. President Trump will continue to fight for us, and we will continue to fight for him. The American people are entitled to an honest election. We must ensure every legal vote must be counted. We must investigate any allegations of fraud. pic.twitter.com/DrAcKkZu9e— WVGOP . . .
Senator Joe, couldn’t you have at least waited until after the Georgia senatorial runoffs to put your Republican suit back on?
West Virginia’s Joe Manchin was on Fox News yesterday committing to vote with Republicans on key issues:

Sorry, Wheeling Intelligencer, just because you did not consider it a contest doesn’t mean that it wasn’t one
Today’s morning “newspaper” has no results from the West Virginia senatorial race
The TV networks called the race early and it was not very close. (As of 11 AM today, the AP had Republican Shelley Moore Capito easily winning with most of the ballots counted.)
