Do editorial boards hate Al Franken? (Update 4 – St. Cloud edition)

The St. Cloud paper keeps Franken’s daily-paper endorsement total at zero, but Coleman doesn’t increase his lead.

I expected there’d be more of these, but the St. Cloud Times has handed Dean Barkley his first non-student-daily endorsement.

Still Al Franken’s shutout string is intact; Norm Coleman still leads the Democrat 6-0 (or 11-0 if you count Forum Communications papers seperately, even though their pick goes chain-wide).

Al Franken — no dailies yet.

Still to weigh in: papers in Rochester, Mankato and Winona, among others.
