Albuquerque Journal Endorses Darren White

Congressional Picks

1st District: Darren White — We are going to ask voters to set aside the attack ads of the last few weeks and the partisanship of the last eight years, to instead focus on the dedication and work ethic needed to represent them as a freshman in Congress. The candidate who has proven he has both is Darren White.

The Republican is conversant on the big issues facing our nation, from the economy (create jobs and cut taxes) to energy (put everything on the table to ensure independence) to the war (pressure Iraq and get U.S. troops home). But his life of public service shows he does more than talk — he makes his own decisions and will hit the D.C. ground running.

White served in the Army's elite 82nd Airborne Division. He pounded a beat as a street cop. He served in a governor's Cabinet as secretary of Public Safety. He's been elected Bernalillo County sheriff twice and delivered a responsive and responsible department. And the epitome of how he operates lies in his response to Hurricane Katrina. White didn't defend or bemoan the federal response; he waded in, leading a team to help survivors.

As sheriff, he says, "You deal with people's problems. At the end of the day you need to solve them."

Voters should elect White's experience and character to tackle the country's problems in Washington.

Not biting. I will be renewing my pledge tomorrow never to buy the ABQ JOURNAL as they brilliantly and eloquently endorse John McSame and Sarah Palin.

Looks like darren is not exactly raking in the votes like he thought he would by posting here. Didn't he check out the site before he posted?

Darren you might make an ok sheriff maybe but congress is not a command and control like the sheriff department or the rangers you have to work with humans not command them.

This site is not just for Liberals, but I think you'll find that most of the posters lean in a common direction.

Oh yeah... Darren... I really hope you lose!
