DDN Endorses John White

From the Dayton Daily News:
State Rep. John White has spent four years proving he didn't run for legislative office so he could go on a pro-life and religious tear. Without abandoning his religious principles, he's tempered the overzealous instincts he showed early in his political career.

Rep. White, who is running in the 38th Ohio House District for a third term, deserves to be re-elected. Though part of a Republican majority that has been timid to spineless about confronting important problems, Rep. White has been a voice of reason in his party. The GOP-dominated Legislature needs Republicans who aren't itching to jerk their knees.
Rep. White's experience counts. And the fact that he's willing to try to temper Republican ideologues who want to posture rather than govern makes his service all the more valuable.
Is the Dayton Daily News trying to get me to call John White a RINO? Surely not.

While I disagree with a lot of the caricature of Rep. White presented in the piece, I wholeheartedly agree with the editorial board on this one: John White deserves to be re-elected.
