More on why endorsements are rarely news:
The Association of Washington Business recently announced its "automatic endorsements" for incumbent lawmakers, based on their voting records.
All 35 lawmakers listed had something in common: Every single one is a Republican.
Then yesterday, Planned Parenthood Votes! Washington (yes, the exclamation point is in the middle of the group's name) issued its endorsements of state lawmakers and candidates.
Of the 76 legislative candidates and incumbents listed, every one is a Democrat. In some races, the group endorsed two Democrats for the same seat.
