On the Blog: Monica Was Right

Oregon Senate candidate Monica Wehby (R) recently used information from WashingtonWatch.com in her campaign against Sen. Jeff Merkley (D). Her statement was accurate, but PolitiFact Oregon rated it “False.”

We weigh into the controversy in a post entitled: “Actually, Monica Wehby was Pretty Much Right.”
