No, at least not in regard to statewide races, which is what we are watching closely. However, there is one interesting recommendation today worthy of mention.

While most newspapers --- at least in central and south Florida --- are announcing their endorsements in local and legislative races and on the proposed constitutional amendments, the Fort Myers News-Press bucks the "let's send back the incumbant" trend and gives it's recommendation to Democrat Robert Neeld of Cape Coral over first term Republican incumbant Connie Mack IV of Fort Myers.

The newspaper editorial says that Mack seems to lack a great understanding of the important issues, that he does not seem to understand or fully appreciate the complexity of the job, and that he lacks substance. It says that Neeld, an accountant who was beaten handily by Mack two years ago, "has had a stake in this community all his life and brings a fresh perspective and a highly analytical mind ready to tackle problems...Even if Republicans keep control of the U.S. House of Representatives, too many Americans are saying we need to change the way we do business. We agree."
