First comes the Washington Post's endorsement of Bob Ehrlich (R) for Maryland governor. He has been behind in the polls and seems to be headed for defeat. I can't understand why the Post would endorse someone who isn't even going to win, unless their plan is to look unbiased on a race that they can't have any bearing on anyway.
The second comes from the Virginian-Pilot in Norfolk who has endorsed Thelma Drake. This paper also has a history of endorsing democrats, so this is a big endorsement for Drake. Whats more, they haven't endorsed in the Senate election, so perhaps they will not make one.
Just some food for thought today.
