Northern Virginia Paper Endorses McDonnell

Newspaper endorsements are generally overrated, and I hadn’t heard much about the Arlington Sun-Gazette, so I wasn’t sure it was a big deal that they endorsed Bob McDonnell. It turns out the Virginia Press Association puts their circulation at 40,787, which is nothing to sneeze at. Also note they endorsed the Democrat running for attorney general, Steve Shannon.

UPDATE: For obvious reasons, NRO readers are most interested in the governor’s race, but I ought to mention that the paper also endorsed the Republican lieutenant governor looking for another term, Bill Bolling.
