Sue Thorn is a breath of fresh air in this election campaign, a non-politician running for office because she wants to make a difference.
During his two years in Congress, David McKinley has voted with the House Republican leadership 98.6 percent of the time: 98.6 might be a normal body temperature but it's unhealthy for West Virginia. McKinley has voted against several good jobs bills, miners' safety, using American-made steel in our pipelines and women's health care.
Why would we want to send McKinley back to do more mischief? Fortunately there is a great alternative for folks in the First District: Sue Thorn. Sue, from Wheeling, has worked in business development, with the religious community (coordinating 22 churches in the Hopeful City project) and most recently in the field of education. She's never run for office before but has dedicated herself to improving lives here in the First Congressional District.
She is not an ideologue, but a practical problem-solver who will be "a thorn in the side of Congress."
