No endorsement in U.S. Senate race
AFAIK-No newspaper should ever endorse a candidate. In any case I agree with the paper for different reasons, but when each candidate is below par, walk away from the vote. Stop voting poor candidates. That is how we got where we are.
Californians are left with a deeply unsatisfying choice for the U.S. Senate this year. The incumbent, Democrat Barbara Boxer, has failed to distinguish herself during her 18 years in office. There is no reason to believe that another six-year term would bring anything but more of the same uninspired representation.
