With 2500 more Wheeling Intelligencer words on the Ohio senate race, West Virginians should be well-informed and ready-to-vote
Except . . . .
Last week, the Wheeling (WV) Intelligencer provided us with 800 words on the views of the Ohio Republican candidates for senate, JD Vance, and the Democratic candidate, Tim Ryan. (Additionally, the paper also published 1,800 words on the Ohio gubernatorial race.) Yesterday’s paper gave us 2,500 more words on the Vance/Ryan contest. That’s . . .
Alex Mooney: “It doesn’t matter that I voted against the bill and called it “reckless spending” – it now makes me look good!”
