No more joking about McKinley's 2020 reelection campaign -- it's on and Ogden papers are ready to do their part

My subheading on yesterday's post about local congressman David McKinley joked that the Intelligencer was launching the McKinley reelection campaign with editor Mike Myer's Saturday column. Despite the fact . . .
