More Public Endorsements
The pattern seems to be set here folks. This week, I posted the Mercury News Endorsements of Pete McCloskey and Jerry McNerney. Today, the Sacramento Bee made it's endorsements public. Good new for Pete, not so good news for Jerry.
The headline is "McCloskey over Pombo in GOP race..." Their net comment on McCloskey is that "Republicans like him are all too rare these days. "
Then, in the Democratic Race, they pick Filson, based mainly on giving the new guy a chance.
For those who want to see a winning candidate in the fall, the race is between McNerney and Filson. If McNerney had run stronger in 2004, Democrats might be justified in giving him another chance. Filson would offer Pombo ample competition in the fall. Give Filson his shot at the 11th District seat.I wish that they had found a stronger reason to back a candidate based on this election cycle's realities. But, I guess that this just evens the score.
Now, what is the Stockton Record going to do? After endorsing Pombo, will they even make a recommendation for the Democrats? Actually, I would quit blogging if the Record did not endorse Pombo. My wife has a lot of work for me to do with the additional time.
