We don’t make a regular thing of publicly supporting candidates for public office, because as a regular thing we vote against candidates rather than for them, something we are tired of doing. And so we take considerable pleasure in letting people know of our wholehearted support for Sellus Wilder in his run for the United States Senate.
We approve of his platform, which we know that he is offering as a promise to his constituents to try in good faith to do what he has told them he will try to do. We are particularly grateful for his commitment to clean soil, clean water and clean air, though he understands the long-term difficulty of that commitment.
We are encouraged, moreover, to see that he is conducting his campaign by telling people the truth as he sees it, not what he thinks they want to hear. This means that he, unlike most candidates, is not afraid to lose. We believe that he is likely to win precisely because he is not afraid to lose.
