Times backs Davis
The St. Pete Times editorial board today said some nice things about Charlie Crist (who picked up the Times-Union endorsement in Jacksonville) but recommended Jim Davis for governor.
"Our decision in this race did not come easily, and the general election campaign has not been nearly as substantive or engaging as we had hoped. What is clear is that Florida is more moderate than the rhetoric and policies coming from the Republican-controlled state capital often suggest. The state's most immediate challenges demand solutions that are more pragmatic than partisan or ideological, and finding those answers will require a governor who can provide some political balance in Tallahassee. Davis offers the best opportunity to steer state government back toward the middle and the most substantive approach to addressing the pressing issues facing Florida."
