Ralph Baxter is a Democrat running for congress in West Virginia. Voters there deserve to know that he is also a northern California neighbor of Nancy Pelosi. Do you think that might influence the way he votes, should he win?
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
West Virginia Dem Candidate Owns Calif. Property Near Pelosi Estate, Sided With Pelosi’s Husband in Winery Project Dispute
West Virginia Democratic House candidate Ralph Baxter is running as a “4th generation West Virginian” and “West Virginian jobs creator,” but he does not mention on his campaign website that he owns property, worth almost $2 million, in House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s (D., Calif.) neighborhood in Napa County, California.
Baxter grew up in West Virginia during his early years, but he moved to California with his parents when he was in fifth grade and only lived in West Virginia periodically over the course of the following six decades…
In 2002, after Baxter was successful in pushing his law firm to open up an office operations center in Wheeling, West Virginia to cut down on administrative costs, the candidate also bought a home in the area, according to Law.com. Baxter, nevertheless, spent most of his time traveling or living in Napa County.
“Now back then I basically lived full-time on United Airlines,” said Baxter, joking about the hectic travel schedule. “But I spent as much time as possible [in Wheeling] and my family loves it here.”
This seems like something that would be important to the people of West Virginia. Don’t you think?
