Post Standard Endorses Walsh!
The Democrat has made his opposition to the war in Iraq a central campaign issue. He also promotes regional solutions to economic development challenges at home, with new transportation links, broader federal assistance and "branding" to identify the area's potential as a center for alternative energy research and development. Walsh's position on Iraq is troubling. While his opponent calls for withdrawing U.S. troops, Walsh speaks of reviewing options. He needs to be front-and-center, helping to get this spiraling crisis under control.
Congratulations to the challenger for running an energetic campaign. If re-elected, the veteran incumbent may need to pick up the pace.
