Primary endorsements today

DAYTONA BEACH -- There is a lot of ground to cover in terms of getting our endorsements published before the Tuesday primary, which is less than 24 hours from now.

With that said, it's time to get bcd to cranking them out. In some campaigns it will be obvious from the in-depth analysis that we are well schooled while in others it might be like pulling teeth. Of the approximately 28 endorsements, there will likely be a handful where we offer only a token recommendation or perhaps none at all. Typically, that would be in some of the smaller municipalities like Lake Helen.

We have a pretty good feel over all so we'll see how things progress today, along with news of the day and any breaking developments along the way. We appreciate your support and your patience.
