County Commission Race In Washington Draws Big Money

OPB reporter Conrad Wilson has been following some of the races in Clark County this election season. He recently discovered a surprising amount of money had been donated from the state GOP to Jeanne Stewart, a Republican candidate for Clark County Commissioner. Wilson spoke to Chris Vance, a former Republican state lawmaker and former chair of the state GOP. Vance told Wilson that the donation was pretty unusual: 

“The state party is not interested in most county races. Only once in a while does it raise to the level that somebody cares about it.”

We’ll talk to Conrad Wilson about this unexpected donation and why it matters.
