Dems Explain Endorsements
Chris Beresford, Vice- Chair of the local Democrats, explains a little about their candidate endorsements in the Eureka Reporter today. I like the way he refers to "erroneous statements" being made, rather than "lies", as is sometimes done.
Interesting to know what their policies are. I'd be even more interested in what the behind the scenes reasons are for their endorsements. For instance; Just exactly why have they endorsed Gallegos over Dikeman, and Neely over Marks?
I suppose the Neely endorsement is, as I mentioned before, pragmatism vs. partisanship; Not only is Neely pretty left leaning, she has the advantage of incumbency, so she's their best bet. And, after all, this 4th District race is all about the Ballon Tract, so they need to go for their best bet.
But Gallegos over Dikeman? I'd like to know the behind the scenes talk that led to that one.
