CLEARLY DISTINCT CHOICES: WOLF VERSUS BARNETT

The Prince William-Manassas Family Alliance’s VOTER GUIDE for the GENERAL ELECTION, NOVEMBER 2nd 10th and 11th DISTRICTS, U.S. HOUSE of REPRESENTATIVES lists candidate positions on eleven different issues. What the guide does is reveal that these candidates have distinctly different positions on these issues. What that suggest is that these candidates also have significantly different philosophies about government.

Unfortunately, candidates are often reluctant to respond to questionnaires, and their lack of response undermines confidence in voter guides such as our own. To add to your confidence, we will review the sources we cited. This post will review the sources used for the VOTER GUIDE for the GENERAL ELECTION, NOVEMBER 2nd 10th DISTRICT, U.S. HOUSE of REPRESENTATIVES.
