Journal Sentinel endorses Ruth Page Jones

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel endorsed Ruth Page Jones over Steve Schmuki in the 97th Assembly District primary. They say it was a tough choice.

Schmuki also gained from the editorial:
We were impressed with Schmuki, 54, when he ran against Kramer two years ago, and we remain so today. An attorney, he has been active on environmental issues and has served as president of the Waukesha County Environmental Action League. He and Jones are very close on most issues, and Schmuki would bring a moderate and articulate voice to the Legislature.

That ought to fit nicely on the campaign lit.

Both candidates were at a candidate forum sponsored by Sophia last night, the only meeting so far in the campaign. I'm surprised the local Democratic Party hasn't sponsored a forum in an effort to crank up the enthusiasm for the two candidates. My thoughts on the two candidates and the forum last night will appear in tomorrow's Waukesha Freeman, well worth the fifty cents.Technorati Tags: , , , ,
