Battle of the Republicans
Not much to go with here. Search engines suggest that the news coverage of Mooney is still primarily focused on the possible ethics violations connected with his campaign expenditures. Mooney's twitter account doesn’t help much either: six of his first ten posts are about rugby. (At one time, Mooney apparently played . . .
West Virginia’s congressional redistricting has been completed and the results will pit District 1’s current congressman, David McKinley, against District 2’s Alex Mooney. I would think that we will be seeing and hearing from both of them right up until the primary next spring. Both were on WV Metro News this week. Here are my reactions.. . .
Yesterday, Senator Capito met virtually with members of the West Virginia press. From today’s write-ups in the Morgantown Dominion-Post and Ogden Newspapers, the bulk of the questions were on four topics: Afghanistan, immigration, and congressional action on infrastructure and voting. The write-ups suggest that the press dutifully listened to . . .
Yesterday, Senator Shelley Moore Capito explained the debate over a coronavirus relief package to the state’s stenographers
Lucky for us, an Ogden representative participated
Yesterday, West Virginia’s junior senator, Shelley Moore Capito, met online with some West Virginia media to discuss the Republican and Democratic coronavirus stimulus plans.

Earlier today: Congressman David McKinley admitted that “Trump was responsible for what happened on Wednesday” but then added “so were others”
McKinley also believes that Trump “didn’t intend for someone to break into the Capitol building”
Ready with his false equivalencies, David McKinley (WV-1) was on Hoppy Kercheval’s talk show earlier today. Kercheval asked McKinley if Trump was responsible for the attack on the Capitol. McKinley answered “yes, absolutely” but then he quickly suggested that others were to blame:
”But so was the media, talk shows, social . . .
Shelley Moore Capito earlier today: Trump’s call to the Georgia Secretary of State was “inappropriate”
Once again, strong words from West Virginia’s Republican senator!
Earlier today, Senator Shelley Moore Capito was on Hoppy Kercheval’s talk show on WV Metro News. Capito was first asked if she agreed with the efforts by some Republicans to overturn the results of the presidential election. Capito did not agree with the efforts but she did think that there was reason to investigate the election. Capito then . . .
Again, Kercheval does his part on WV MetroNews
Hoppy Kercheval on WV MetroNews is probably the state’s best interviewer of politicians. He asks good questions and then usually follows them up with even better questions. Our local congressional representative, David McKinley, for instance, loves to appear in local media because he . . .
