Cedar Rapids Gazette Endorses Nussle

If you're looking for a more reasoned endorsement today, Johnson County citizens need only look up the road to the Cedar Rapids Gazette, which today endorsed Jim Nussle for Governor.

Jim Nussle can be a great leader of Iowa. He has the right philosophy about limited government and the right experience in the trenches of budget-making and government reform. The Manchester Republican has proven his ability to work in moderate and bipartisan fashion, a fact most apparent from his eight successful congressional elections out of an Eastern Iowa district with Democratic leanings.

The Gazette was not alone in reflecting the mainstream values of Iowans better than a certain paper in Des Moines. Nussle has now gained endorsements from the daily newspapers in Cedar Rapids, Sioux City, Dubuque, Fort Dodge, Estherville.

UPDATE: You can also add the newspapers of Ames, and Marshalltown.
