Wisconsin State Journal: Mary Burke Is Best To Lead Wisconsin Forward

Although the Wisconsin State Journal did at least editorialize over the past four years about Scott Walker's scandals and failures (many Wisconsin newspapers refused to address the subjects), they always seemed apologetic in the end or blaming opponents for his troubles. So I did not see this endorsement coming. Keep in mind the State Journal had previously endorsed Walker.

The first sentence is a good hint the paper finally has its priorities in order.

WSJ Editorial Excerpt:
State politics is far too divisive under Gov. Scott Walker. Wisconsin lags on jobs and faces its third largest budget shortfall in two decades.

I never thought I'd say this, but kudos to the WSJ for making the smart choice. It's a good read all the way to the end.

I've had a sneaking suspicion the past few weeks the WSJ just might endorse Burke. By all objective measures, Walker has failed as governor. He can spin it all he likes, but WI economic recovery has lagged our neighbors. I'd suggest we'd have done much better had he not taken the divide and concur approach.
