I liked Don Surber's turn of phrase in describing Rep. Nick Joe Rahall's re-election strategy.
First, Rahall is counting on UMW support for his coal cred. Over the 29 years I have lived in this state, the United Mine Workers has diminished in strength politically. Its supporters are dying out. Rahall does not seem to get the message. He’s waiting for a telegram in a Twitter age.
It will be interesting to see what happens across the border, due west of Fishersville.
