Can you believe that Rupie Phillips has won the primary election over Ted Tomblin, Ted Ellis, and Harry Freeman. Did anyone hear Rupie's interview on WVOW after the election? It was terrible. He has no plan as to how he will fight for coal jobs or any other fix any other problems facing the 19th District. When asked how he will fight for coal jobs, that are being targeted on the national lever, in the state legislature, he replied after pausing for about 15 seconds in confusion that he is a business man and he will call his customers to educate him. Come on now, we elected this man over prominent men in the community. This man has no idea about governmental affairs. Let's hope this idiot doesn't make it through the general.

Ted won the election until Lincoln County votes came in. I know for a fact that Tracy Dempsey fought Ted in that county tooth and nail because Ted supported Harry Kirk to coach at Chapmanville. Ted was on that committee and picked Harry over Brad Napier, who is Tracy's nephew. Brad, an assistant to Hatcher at Logan, tried to get that job and didn't. Tracy has been against Ted ever since. Tracy used his pull in that county to hurt Ted with all his buddies. Tracy backed Rupie instead. So the Chapmanville area lost its best voice in the House over a basketball coaching job just because somebody's ego got hurt. Well, Ted loses if they decide to count all those crooked absentee votes in Lincoln. If they don't, Ted would win.

Inside Tack, you are on to something. Rupie is an idiot. Teddy should have revived the nomination, at least he understands that state legislatures can't fight on a federal level.
