Senate Newspaper Endorsement List

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

Following on the lead of our Presidential Newspaper Endorsement List, here's a list of Newspaper Endorsements in key Senate races.

All papers have also endorsed the same party's Presidential candidate unless noted with a (o), (m), or (n)-no endorsement.

Feel free to let us know about any endorsements we don't list. We will add any interesting articles we find regarding each endorsement as an asterisk. And as always... you can comment on the lists and your feelings on who endorses whom.
