Corwin endorsement announcement leaves out some details

GOP candidate in the 26th Congressional District, Jane Corwin, did her best Wednesday night to react to today's endorsement of war veteran David Bellavia for Jack Davis by gathering the endorsement of 20 military veterans in Congress.


She failed to note, however, that they're all Republicans. Yep, I checked ... and you can, too. One would hope that the endorsed GOP candidate would get the endorsement of Republican Congressmen, especially considering she just got the endorsement of the Speaker of the House, John Boehner.


Does she assume we're stupid? I wonder if any news outlets will run with this.
