The question raised by this WJS correction is a real head-scratcher in that regard:
Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan, a Democrat, is running against Republican Rep. Roy Blunt for U.S. Senate. Lee Fisher, the lieutenant governor of Ohio, is running for the U.S. Senate in his state. In some editions Tuesday, a front-page article about political spending for Republican candidates incorrectly said that Rep. Blunt is running against Mr. Fisher and that Mr. Fisher is Missouri’s lieutenant governor.
Ach, well, it’ll be academic starting next January anyway. For both of them.
