Tri-State campaign notes

September 28, 1998

Del. Charles Trump IV, R-Morgan, recently told the Morgan County (W.Va.) Republican Club that the recent work on roads and highways in Morgan County is the result of the work of Sen. Harry Dugan, R-Berkeley.

"I wish I could claim credit, but the fact is that it is because of Harry Dugan that we have received so much help on our roads," Trump said. "It is imperative for the good of the region that Senator Dugan be returned to office. He has been doing a terrific job at bringing home the bacon to Morgan County and I'm not sure that people know that."

Dugan thanked the Morgan County Republicans for providing the margin of victory in his primary election race with former Berkeley County Commissioner Howard Strauss. "You must be sure to go to the polls and vote because the only concern we have is a low turnout. In this county, only two or three households not voting can make the difference between victory and defeat," he said.
