Sun Times and National Org. for Women join the fray

By now, everyone and their blog-reading little brother knows about the Sun Times endorsement for Naisy Dolar. If you look closely, you can see a slight bit of hesitation on their part, as they give a nod to Brewer in their bit about the 50th ward. Most likely (though I have no hard evidence to support this), they were not keen on going against the CFL and AFSCME endorsements of Brewer. However, that pro-union bias was still beaten by their clear support of Dolar. Not only is her name in bold, but the Sun Times went on to say:

"She's energetic, has deep roots in the Devon Avenue area and as a former human relations liaison with the city, is experienced at building coalitions."

That endorsement puts both of the major Chicago papers in favor of Dolar. Equally important is the National Organization for Women's endorsement of Dolar. And lest any of you nay-sayers say that's a totally "worthless" [as in meritless] endorsement [because she's "just" a woman getting endorsed by a women's organization], note that NOW endorsed Daley over Dorothy Brown.

Concerned,

I don't understand the relationship of NOW endorsing Naisy and Daley. Are you saying that they SHOULD have endorsed Brown?

I hope so! She has a lot of energy and enthusiasm.

Anon: sorry for the confusion. I clarified what I meant by editing the original post and inserting the bracketed text.
