Tom Sherwood of NBC 4 says that the Washington Post’s endorsement is taken more seriously for mayoral candidates but not for ward council seats.


In the last two races, the Washington Post endorsed 10 candidates for city council and 8 of them lost their races.


Tom Sherwood pointed out that Adrian Fenty, Kwame Brown, Marion Barry, Vincent Orange and Sharon Ambrose all won their races despite the fact the Washington Post did not endorse them.


Also, the Washington Post endorsements on the ward seat levels are seen by some as the kiss of death based upon it bad record of picking winners for city council.
