Campaign Finance Reports Show GOP Congressional Candidates' Fundraising Ahead Of Dems'

Oct 17, 2019

On this West Virginia Morning, Republican candidates in West Virginia’s 2020 congressional races appear to be significantly out-fundraising Democrats, according to third quarter campaign finance reports. Dave Mistich has more.

Also on today’s show, we pick up with a conversation with state superintendent of schools Steven Paine. When asked what keeps him up at night about the school system, he points to student and teacher absenteeism and even more than that: the stark deterioration of student well-being. 

Education reporter Glynis Board spoke with Paine about these and other issues.
