Spin Control

A site for endorsements

With the Aug. 7 primary approaching, some harried voters are looking for all help possible to help them decide among the long list of candidates, many of them unknown, for offices, many of them unfamiliar.

Spokesman.com has the Election Center which gives you information about the candidates' background and issues. Now, we also have a link to a page for the newspaper's endorsements.

This is not to suggest that Spin Control believes you should vote your ballot the way the newspaper endorses.

For one thing, it's not really possible, because in many races the editorial board picks two candidates, and you only get to choose one.

For another, we realize that while some people may would look to the newspaper's sage advice for guidance in selecting a candidate, at least as many — and probably more — look at a Spokesman-Review endorsement and immediately vote the other way.

We're just collecting all of the endorsements in one place, as a service to our readers. What you do with them is up to you.

We've got no stake in the endorsements to begin with, because reporters don't sit in on the discussions before endorsements are made, and don't pay attention to them after they are published.
