Grim...there's no difference in either of them. Neither is better or worse. Personally, I don't even know the parties of many of the candidates here unless I look them up and many of the offices they are running for should have nothing to do with policy anyway. Our country's campaigning and election process is an embarrassment.
We have both senate and house seats up for grabs this year, that have regularly gone to the same democratic candidates in the past.
The thing is... every commercial run for GOP candidates, has nothing to do with WV. These are WV elections, and all the GOP commercials talk about is Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Obamas agenda. There is no mention at all, of any issues that actually concern my state.
The Dems aren't much better, since all their commercials are countering the mud slinging that has occurred in the local papers, and don't really address WV issues.
I don't need my local election to be a referendum on national politics. I wish my state's candidates would remember that.
