I'm not. Anyone could have predicted the endorsements of the Roanoke Times for the three statwide offices. If I could just teach Shelly to read, I'm sure she could have predicted just as accurately.
Sorry Wendy, but I just can't see this process causing much debate amongst the Editorial Board. So far the major requirement to gain a Times endorsement seems to be a "yes" vote for the latest tax increase. Each candidate endorsed so far has supported the "budget reform" of Mark Warner.
I'll again step out on a limb and predict that incumbents from either party who supported the "budget reform" will be endorsed. The only exception would be a Republican incumbent opposed by a Democrat.
