Manhattan, KS (westernkansasnews.com) The concern over Ebola has become a political issue. Democrats including 1st district congressional candidate Jim Sherow are blaming Republican budget cuts for making the US vulnerable to the disease.
Nina Pham, one of the Dallas nurses that contracted the disease was declared free of the virus last Friday.
In the campaign to keep his seat Republican Congressman Tim Huelskamp criticized Sherow for supporting regulations that would hurt energy development including the proposed coal fired power plant in Holcomb.
Sherow thinks the US can benefit by curbing its own carbon emissions.
There are no published polls to indicate where this race just days before Tuesday’s election.
