Pensacola News Journal endorses Mike Hill in special election for House District 2

Citing “his desire to be a voice in Tallahassee for those who don’t have one”, the Pensacola News Journal is endorsing Mike Hill in the special election for House District 2.

Recognizing that the candidates “have precious little time selling themselves to voters”, the PNJ editorial board argues that Hill’s “military experience, passion for open government and business experience make him the best candidate for Republicans to nominate for the state House.”

Also, the ed. board contends, “Hill’s values make him a solid match for this conservative area.”

While making mention of the fact that “others in the field tout their municipal experience, business acumen and desire to serve the public,” the editors did not have anything else to say — positive or negative — about the other candidates in the field.
