Veteran announces bid for Alex Mooney’s congressional seat

"An Army veteran and former nonprofit director announced his plan Monday to challenge Republican Alex Mooney for his seat in West Virginia’s second congressional district. Aaron Scheinberg said he plans to run as a Democrat in the 2018 election. He previously worked as the Northeast executive director of The Mission Continues, an organization designed to help veterans readjust and find purpose in their communities at home. Having served for five years on active duty with the U.S. Army himself, discharged as a captain, Scheinberg said he wants to re-emphasize the service aspect of public service."
