Kerry Takes Early Lead in Newspaper Endorsements


Following my post about Philly's endorsement of John F. Kerry (yes in case you don't know it yet - he's the other JFK) clu via linkfilter has this link from Washington Post.
You might need to sign-up to read the article but I tell you it's worth it.

Here's an excerpt:

The Democratic presidential nominee has jumped out to an early lead in the race for newspaper endorsements, especially from those in the all-important swing states.

Kerry has won the support of nine papers in closely contested states, while four are backing President Bush. Both of Philadelphia's major newspapers -- the Inquirer and the Daily News -- have endorsed Kerry. So has the Oregonian, which backed Bush in 2000. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Detroit Free Press, the Daily Star in Tucson, the Portland Press Herald in Maine and both of the big papers in Seattle -- the Times and the Post-Intelligencer -- have announced their support for Kerry.

Bush, meanwhile, has won endorsements from the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the Columbian in Vancouver, Wash., the Pueblo Chieftain in Colorado and the Courier in Findlay, Ohio. Most of the rest of his endorsements, according to an ongoing survey by the trade publication Editor & Publisher, have come from smaller papers in uncontested states. Among them: the Tulsa World; the Sun in Lowell, Mass.; Alabama's Mobile Register; and the Amarillo Globe-News in Texas.

Overall, nationwide, Kerry is up 11 papers to eight. Or, if you want to measure in terms of circulation, he's winning 2,534,377 to 637,187.
It must be nightware of a hell week in the Republican Camp.
