Is that endorsement really something to brag about?
We've already heard advertisements touting Anne Northup's endorsement by the Herald-Leader and Courier-Journal. Those endorsements came as no surprise. Those papers didn't endorse Fletcher in 2003.
But are they really anything to brag about? Both newspapers have a leftist editorial philosophy, a secular humanist outlook bordering on socialistic.
The Herald-Leader is even so kind to tell us each year why that newspaper endorses candidates.
We like this line: "The board selects, by consensus or vote, which candidates more closely share its visionf or this community, state and nation."
That means that the Herald-Leader endorses the most liberal candidates.
Do conservative Republican voters in this state REALLY want to vote for the candidate the Herald-Leader touts as basically the most liberal?
We didn't think so.
