Hats off to Asssemblyman Paul Cook (R-Ycca Valley) and Mayor Ryan McEachron (R-Victorville).

Both men have actually made it into voter mailboxes in the open 8th Congressional District.

The big question is where are the rest of the candidates, especially County Supervisor Brad Mitzelfelt (R-Wrightwood)?

Mitzelfelt, who raised a comparable amount of dough to Cook and McEachron, hasn’t been visible, at least in the southeastern part of the district.

Money, or lack thereof, is clearly impacting this heavily-congested race.
