A number of liberals tut-tutted when Ron Johnson’s home newspaper endorsed the incumbent US Senator Russ Feingold.
I don’t put much stock in newspaper endorsements anymore, especially when so many front page stories already do the work once left to the editorial page. However, this endorsement of Johnson over Janesville native Feingold in the Janesville Gazette is particularly devastating for this line:
If having a Janesville native in the U.S. Senate is to our advantage, it wasn’t apparent when his hometown needed him most.
The newspaper says Feingold has grown even more arrogant since they endorsed him over Tim Michels.
