Srrib, you are losing any credibility you had in your endorsement picks. You endorse Kruse, even though you clearly state you like Hoffman's policies better and he is more qualified. And the only reason you are supporting Kruse is because he is not as bad as the rest of the GOP? That's no reason to pick someone. Endorse the person you think is the best candidate, which in this case you say is Hoffman.

Anyone that watched the stadium debate saw Kruse in action. While I was also against the stadium Kruse proved to be an embarrassment to the Republican party and the state.

Dear Star Tribune editorial board, your endorsement of Kruse boils down to "because he's a Republican." Really? That's the best you can do? It's so important to maintain a Republican majority, that you endorse candidates who you concede are inferior just to do so?

The person who wrote the endorsement for Howe has absolutely no idea who the guy is. If he did, Schmit would get the nod.

When the DFL controlled the house and senate did the strib ever endorse a GOP candidate to promote bipartisanship? The DFL is as partisan, if not more partisan, than the GOP.

Hmm, John Hoffman has the endorsement of both republican former Governor Calrson and democratic former US Senator and Vice President Mondale. If you want someone who can work across the aisle, John Hoffman is the choice in SD 36.
