CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — A women’s political advocacy group has taken two tries to fly the correct U.S. senator’s name over West Virginia after a mix-up that had Charleston residents scratching their heads.
UltraViolet co-founder Nita Chaudhary told The Associated Press on Tuesday that a third-party vendor jumbled signs targeting Nevada Sen. Dean Heller and West Virginia Sen. Shelley Moore Capito.
No one caught the error until the banner reading “Sen. Heller: Keep your word, vote no on Trumpcare” was soaring over Charleston on Monday.
The group re-printed the Capito sign and flew it in her state Tuesday afternoon, reading “Sen. Capito: Trumpcare hurts WV families.”
The Heller sign may not fly in Nevada due to extreme heat.
UltraViolet flew a third banner targeting Sen. Susan Collins over Portland, Maine on Monday.
The three Republicans have not supported a GOP bill to overhaul federal health laws.
