Detroit Free Press endorses Schwarz

The Detroit Free Press endorsed Congressman Joe Schwarz in the Aug. 8 primary over Tim Walberg in an editorial on Friday.
"Schwarz is a reasonable man in a Congress with too many polar opposites. Walberg's uncompromising conservatism would only add to the divisiveness in Washington," the Free Press editorial board wrote. "JOE SCHWARZ is among the most forward-thinking members of the Michigan delegation. He has done respectable work for his district and deserves nomination for a second term."
It's unclear when and if newspapers in the 7th District will make endorsements in the Republican primary.
In 2004, the Daily Telegram of Adrian made no endorsement in a six-man GOP primary that included Schwarz, Walberg and four others.
The Free Press also endorsed Chuck Ream in the four-person Democratic primary.
Ream, 59, is a trustee of Scio Township in Washtenaw County and has supported the legalization of marijuana.

More endorsements
Walberg and Schwarz have complete list of endorsements on their Web sites.
Lenawee County Republican Party chairman Ted Dusseau, of Madison Township, has said he's backing Walberg.
Schwarz is backed by former Democratic state senator and one-time Adrian Mayor Jim Berryman, whom Dusseau despises.
Walberg doesn't have Dussseau list on his endorsements Web page, yet.
