Flip­ping to find Den­ver

Rappahannock News - - COMMENT - ART ZIMMERLI View­town

Last week’s edi­tion of the Rap­pa­han­nock News in­cluded the re­sults of the 5th district con­gres­sional race.

On the front page, above the fold, was a pic­ture of a smil­ing Leslie Cock­burn, Demo­cratic can­di­date. I thought she had won.

A pic­ture of the win­ner, a Repub­li­can, was rel­e­gated to page 6.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Con­gress­man-elect Den­ver Rig­gle­man. Ed­i­tor’s note: Had Den­ver Rig­gle­man met with Rap­pa­han­nock County vot­ers on Elec­tion Day the Rap­pa­han­nock News would have cer­tainly cov­ered his visit start to fin­ish and an­gled as al­ways for pho­to­graphs. In­stead he cam­paigned in the cen­tral and south­ern 5th con­gres­sional district, to the North Carolina bor­der. The News did reach Rig­gle­man by tele­phone shortly be­fore mid­night on Elec­tion Night, as was re­ported in the news­pa­per.
