ONLY ONE ENDORSEMENT AND...HERE'S THE UPDATED LIST OF WHO RECOMMENDS WHO

The Daytona Beach News Journal follows the lead of the other nine major Florida newspapers which have done so and endorses State Senator Walter J. "Skip" Campbell of Fort Lauderdale in the Democratic primary race for Attorney General. It's the only endorsement any of the papers is making today, as many have already made their recommendations. At least a couple still have not, mainly in North Florida.

Now, here is the updated list of newspaper endorsements for statewide and some of the Central Florida congressional races. Click on their name to be taken to the bio from their Web site or another source if they do not have an Internet presence.

You need to update your entry. Will McBride was endorsed by the Bradenton Hearld on Saturday 8/26/2006 and by The Orlando Sentinel on Sunday 8/27/2006.

Great job! A helpful list.

(I hope the FL blogging community is still doing well.)

I agree with Concerned GOP Voter about something-- the need to update your list of endorsements (right on the eve of the election!) In FL-05 Rick Penberthy has been endorsed by The Orlando Sentinel, The Citrus County Chronicle, Hernando Today, The Ledger, and Florida Consumer Action Network.
