WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at http://www.DemocraticConventionWatch.com
Wasilla's Mat-Su Valley Frontiersman has endorsed John McCain for President.
Choosing the leader of the free world is an important responsibility, one we all share Nov. 4.Unfortunately for John and Sarah it's not a daily so we won't put it on our Newspaper Endorsement List. Obama leads 220-75.
Electing a new president of the United States is heady stuff and should never be taken lightly. For Alaskans and voters in the Mat-Su, this year’s general election will also be historic as we have the privilege to vote on a presidential ticket that includes a local, home-grown candidate.
Since her announcement Aug. 29 as Sen. John McCain’s running mate on the Republican ticket, Gov. Sarah Palin has dominated the political headlines. From her personal life to her sudden rise into the national spotlight, America and the media cannot seem to get enough Palin.While the clamor over Palin has been revealing and entertaining, it’s time for voters to focus on the choice we have to lead the United States for the next four years.
We endorse John McCain as that leader.
