Yesterday, the Salmon Press endorsed John McCain for the Republican nomination.
"U.S. Sen. John McCain has the right stuff to become a statesman, indeed to become among our greatest presidents, but standing in his way is the prickly business of having to get elected," the editorial states.
"Sen. McCain is a man of great depth and character. He has demonstrated an enormous capacity for growth over his political career and his military record is truly heroic -- in stark contrast to those of his opponents," they wrote.
The Salmon Press operates 11 weekly newspapers with a circulation larger than The Union Leader.
