“We saw no opportunity to serve the purpose of informing readers beyond what the news pages and their own civic diligence have done.
In the end, we did not feel comfortable giving either candidate what would essentially come down to bragging rights.
We believe our readers are perfectly capable of making an informed, rational decision by their own lights, and we strongy urge them to do so.”
