Washington Post Endorsed Dave Marsden

In a special election that will likely have very low turnout, an endorsement from the Washington Post can be very useful in reminding voters that there's an election coming up. Of course, it also helps if that reminder comes in the form of an endorsement for your candidate. That's why I'm pleased to see that the Washington Post has endorsed Dave Marsden for Senate in the 37th District.
Dave W. Marsden, a Democrat, is a well-respected expert on incarceration, juvenile justice and rehabilitation, having run the Fairfax County Juvenile Detention Center for 17 years as well as the state's Department of Juvenile Justice, a position for which he was chosen by a Republican governor. Mr. Marsden has served two terms in the House of Delegates with distinction.

What Mr. Hunt offers is mainly cliches. Better to elect Mr. Marsden, who brings policy expertise, fiscal realism and sound judgment.
Based upon what I've been hearing, there's still a lot of work that needs to be done during the last week of the campaign if Marsden is going to win the election. However, I think this endorsement could provide some extra momentum for all the volunteers who are out knocking on doors for Dave. More importantly, it provides voters with yet another example of why it's so important that we send Dave to the state senate.
