State Sen. Chris Walters, a Republican who now represents Craigo's former district, said he usually orders "The Ron" when he visits Tudor's. But he's willing to give "The Politician" a chance.
"I think it's fun. Being a former senator . . . he would know how to create a sandwich to represent politics," he said.
Delegate Danny Wells, D-Kanawha, said he isn't offended by Craigo's sandwich at all because, by Wells' estimation, the name doesn't apply to him.
"I consider myself not a politician, but a statesman. He just missed me completely," he said.
Wells wants Craigo to create a "Steaks-man" sandwich, a filet mignon on a biscuit.
"I'd be willing to pay for it. It'd be a class above bologna, that's for sure," he said.
Governor's Office spokeswoman Amy Shuler-Goodwin said she could not comment on the sandwich until she tried it, although she admitted the bologna-egg-cheese combination sounded "delicious."
No word if the governor's office will commission a study on the deliciousness of the sandwich.
But like Wells, Goodwin said she could not relate to the biscuit's name.
"It certainly doesn't represent those within state government I work with, but it sounds like a fabulous breakfast," she said.
The Politician might be a good candidate, but it currently lacks name recognition. Craigo said Tudor's would shoot a commercial next month to introduce the new biscuit to its constituents.
He expects very high approval ratings.
