And here a full month before the election the endorsement is early as well. Here is an excerpt from the Sun Herald OpEd:
Tanned and open-collared, Taylor embodies the Coast wherever he goes, from Bay St. Louis to Afghanistan.
Yet his face has lost that boyish look. Partly, no doubt, because he just turned 57. But probably more so because he lost almost everything but life to Katrina, an experience that aged us all.
While we do not agree with him on everything, Gene Taylor has never given us reason to think that he has anything but the best interests of his constituents at heart.
Such loyalty deserves our support.
Indeed it does.
