Inky endorses Menendez in U.S. Senate contest

The Philadelphia Inquirer yesterday endorsed U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) over Republican challenger state Sen. Joseph Kyrillos (R-13) in the U.S. Senate contest.

While praising Kyrillos as “the most substantial Republican candidate in recent years, his own plan to solve the nation’s economic problems is foggy.”

Like presidential candidate Mitt Romney, the paper complains, Kyrillos talks about closing tax loopholes, but he won’t be specific.

“His vagueness makes it risky for voters to take a chance on how he would vote if elected,” says the Inquirer.

Newly acquired by a team of owners, including South Jersey Democratic Power Player George Norcross III, the paper heaped praise on the incumbent Democrat, pressing for his return.

“In the Senate, Menendez’s key assignments on the banking, finance, and foreign relations committees have allowed him to fiercely advocate for the middle class and vulnerable Americans,” opined the Inky.
