With the political campaign season now in its final 20 days, candidates are crisscrossing the area with amazing regularity. It’s good to see them paying attention to our part of the state.
Several high-profile Democratic candidates, including U.S. Senate candidate Alexi Giannoulias, have made stops in Fayette County during the campaign season.
Last Thursday, several statewide Republican candidates visited Vandalia. In attendance were gubernatorial candidate Bill Brady, lieutenant governor candidate Jason Plummer and state Rep. Ron Stephens (R-Greenville).
