The candidates are coming, and no one's endorsing!

I called Senator Andy Dinniman (D-19th) yesterday and asked him, "Now that the Democratic presidential contenders are coming to Pennsylvania, are you ready to make an endorsement?"

He laughed and said, "You're giving me this wonderful opportunity to announce my endorsement?"

"Well... yes," I said.

He told me he's not endorsing.

"Someone has to stand up and make sure everyone keeps their eyes on the bigger prize in November," he said. "Someone has to be around to keep everybody cool so that we'll be together after the primary."

He's not the only big name Democrat around here who's not endorsing. You can read more about local endorsements in the article I wrote yesterday about the campaign preparations the Democratic presidential contenders are making in Chester County.

So, should our local politicians be making endorsements, or should they stand back?
