While this article is good, I'm disappointed in the lack of coverage on the other contested races, VP of Senate, and Social Sciences, as well as the Vice-President of SAC position. Making informed choices is key to making democracy work and people often depend on the media to help inform them. I know another paper will not be published before the election, but hopefully something this newsworthy will merit an article on MediaOCU before then.
