You see it all the time. Political parties endorsing their own candidates, Republican and Democrat officeholders endorsing Republican and Democrat candidates.
But what do these endorsements mean to the voting public?
Another common practice is for the parties to form "generic" sounding names of groups which endorse only whom? The candidates of a particular party.
Here are a couple of local examples. The Stark County Republican Party has formed "Votes for Women." This organization endorses only Republican candidates to make it appear that a given candidate is the preferred candidate of women across the board.
The Stark County Democratic Party has formed "Coalition of Women Voters." Samo, samo. The Coalition for Women Voters endorses only Democratic candidates to make it appear that a given candidate is the preferred candidate of women across the board.
Stark County Republican and Democratic chairs should be ashamed of themselves. Perpetuating a deception on local voters.
Question: What do you think of the attempted deception on voters by Stark County's two main stream political parties?
