Newspaper NON-endorsements of the NIMBYs

Updated October 30th.

The following newspapers have chosen NOT to endorse Barbara Boxer OR Mimi Walters:

Bakersfield Californian
Fresno Bee
Inland Valley Daily Bulletin
Los Angeles Daily News
Merced Sun Star
Modesto Bee
Pasadena Star News
Redlands Daily Facts
San Bernardino Sun
San Francisco Chronicle
San Francisco Examiner
San Mateo Daily Journal
San Gabriel Valley Tribune
Whittier Daily News

At this point Barbara Boxer's record is 16-27-2 from newspapers that have made endorsements for Senate which is 37%. This is pretty bad for someone who has 100% name recognition!
Three of her hometown newspapers did NOT endorse her. The San Francisco Chronicle said NONE of the above, while the San Francisco Examiner and The Palm Spring Desert Sun endorsed her opponent. 
In Southern California, The L.A. Times is the ONLY newspaper to endorse her! Every other paper in So Cal that has endorsed for Senate, did NOT pick Boxer.
Mimi Walters fares even worse as she has a record of 2-29 when it has come to endorsements for Treasurer. She is at less than 6% so far!
The one newspaper that did endorse Walters has not even appeared on her campaign site. She is probably unaware of the endorsement. LOL! Her "endorsements" section on her website is empty.  Walters had better not plan on quitting her day job as a State Senator.

Stay tuned as we monitor the endorsement race.
