In "one of the most competitive congressional races in recent history," the Daily News editorial is asking voters to cast ballots for Democrat Howard Berman and Republican Susan Shelley. That leaves out the Valley's other big congressional incumbent, Brad Sherman. Here's what they say in this morning's editorial:
We urge Democrats to support Berman. while both he and Sherman have been hard-working congressmen for their districts, Berman's nearly 30-year career has been more distinguished — and his politics have been more moderate. He's more likely than Sherman to cross the aisle for legislation...[and] he's also a heck of a nice guy.
That last observation was a surprise to the Daily News editors, who admitted they hadn't met with Berman in a while. Unlike Sherman, who they find is easily available.
In April, Berman also got the LA Times endorsement.
