It’s Mike Wilson in the third and Richard Marks in the Fourth – my picks exactly, but I guess in local politics terms a split ticket.

Obviously I don’t disagree with the endorsements, but it dawns on me that I can’t recall an election where the TS didn’t seem to be deliberately splitting its endorsements among slates.  It’s like they’re determined to sit on the fence.


Over at the Arcata Eye, Kevin Hoover posted a very good discussion of the Third District race.  Does anybody besides me really miss Kevin’s Nohum Reports on KMUD Monday mornings?

Kevin is endorsing Wilson by the way, and the trail – but not some of his progressive support (including Heraldo).
