Strib Endorsement Watch 2008: Part 2

Today we see a shocking turn as the Strib continues to rate state House candidates:

District 42B: Jenifer Loon (GOP)

I'm going to guess that they mistook her surname as a synonym for Democrat.

District 49B: Jerry Newton (DFL)

District 51A: Tim Sanders (GOP)

"Our nod to Sanders amounts to a bet on the come." This is a craps term meaning "he has a good shot at governing like a RINO." More evidence to support that translation: "But Sanders exhibits ... good judgment in avoiding a pledge not to raise taxes."

For the first time ever, I think, The SEB endorsed more Republicans than Tics in a single article. This is an historic moment. But don't get your hopes up. The US House and Senate endorsements will likely be a bloodbath for the GOP.

Running tally:

DFL - 6

GOP - 4
