Thanks to the Mesabi Daily News, Norm Coleman’s daily-paper endorsement margin swells. It’s now Norm 6-0* over Franken (11-0 if you count Forum Communications papers seperately, even though their pick goes chain-wide). Barkley has received the Minnesota Daily’s nod.
Has any major-office candidate secured this kind of elite-filter sweep?
♦ Minnesota Daily
Al Franken — no dailies yet.
Still to weigh in: papers in Rochester, St. Cloud, Mankato and Winona, among others.
(* – note: I’m obviously a Twin Cities guy. I’ve moved the McLeod County Chronicle off the list; they’re not a daily.)
