Newspaper Pulls Endorsement of Candidate

The Hutchinson News withdrew its endorsement of Salinan Tracey Mann (R) in the crowded Republican primary in Kansas' 1st congressional district.

"Quite simply, the reason is that it turns out Mann is what is known as a birther. He questions the citizenship of President Barack Obama despite evidence that is irrefutable to most objective, rational people - including a birth certificate released by the Hawaii secretary of state and birth announcements printed in Honolulu's two major newspapers. That this even continues as an issue is appalling, which is why we didn't think to pose the question to Mann or any of the other candidates."
