Ann Arbor News stiffs Walberg & Renier

The Ann Arbor News' editorial board thinks neither Tim Walberg or Sharon Renier should be the 7th District's next representative in Congress.
In an editorial today, the Ann Arbor newspaper declined to endorse Republican Walberg or Democrat Renier. The 7th District includes most of Washtenaw County and all of Lenawee County, where the Ann Arbor News is widely circulated.
"Walberg's entrenched conservative stances on virtually every issue, from abortion to Iraq, offer no room for compromise - and that ideological rigidity should have no place in Congress," The News' editors wrote about Tim Walberg. "His unwillingness to engage in the necessary give and take of governance makes him an untenable choice."
The News' editors said Sharon Renier is no better.
"In meeting with The News' editorial board earlier this year, she touted job growth accomplishments on her part that bordered on absurdity and didn't seem to understand the basics of how government works," the paper's editors wrote.
For readers who want to respond to this editorial, here is the e-mail address for the paper's letters to the editor section.

This is a huge boost for Renier. Papers rarely go out on a limb to endorse a loser. She has all the markings of a loser with her electoral track record and the liklihood of a DEM taking the 7th. BUT, Walberg has done nearly everything WRONG since winning the GOP primary and I think the pundits smell BLOOD. It would be foolish to come out and support her, but they are totally hedging their bets and hinting this could be an upset. I'd love to see the polls and info they see, but my gut tells me they see a takeover for the Dems here.

You guys are crazy. The Dems will not takeover. The local paper the Daily Telegram had a great editorial why they endorsed him.
