“Candidates’ beliefs are the indispensable foundation upon which voters decide. Straight talk is required, not canned convictions. So why are Skip Ogle’s positions word-for-word on the websites of other candidates?

The Tribune is attempting to contact the other campaigns for comment and will update with reaction when available.
