For first time, Green Bay Press-Gazette endorses Feingold

The Green Bay Press-Gazette (a Gannett newspaper) has given its endorsement to Russ Feingold, the first time it has ever done so. Their reasoning: while there was agreement with Johnson on some principles, “Johnson seemed unable to further articulate his plan for job creation — especially for the middle class — during a recent meeting with the Green Bay Press-Gazette editorial board. Basic principles of restraint are one thing; a detailed proposal to spur job creation and get our economy moving is another.”

Indeed, Johnson has become well-known for his inability to specify anything that would create middle-class jobs. Lord knows that he doesn’t need to worry about his own job security, though IllyT rightly argues that that is what Johnson is after.

It’s no wonder people are coming back to Russ Feingold. They know he’ll do us right.
