The Express-News is throwing its editorial support behind Henry Cuellar in the 28th District primary race.
This is not a surprise if you look at their editorial board's recent history. Cuellar is clearly their kind of "Democrat."
Cuellar supported Bush/Cheney for President in 2000 and 2004, just like the E-N.
Cuellar supported launching the invasion of Iraq over the bogus threat of WMDs, just like the E-N. And he continues to make excuses and apologize for that initial blunder, just like the E-N.
Cuellar supported CAFTA to the detriment of U.S. labor, just like the E-N.
And Cuellar promises to continue playing kissy-face with the Bush administration for as long as he is in office, just like the E-N.
Fortunately, there is a real Democrat in this race - former Rep. Ciro Rodriguez who has a good shot and regaining his seat. Let's just hope that Democratic voters can see through these faux endorsements by Republican groups like the Club for Growth and the E-N Editorial Board.
