The Clarion-Ledger Editorial, 7/15/7

As the Aug. 7 primaries approach, the races are about as exciting as eating salt-free soda crackers with the exception of the GOP lite governor showdown and the Democratic primary in the insurance commissioner’s race.

The Phil Bryant/Charlie Ross race for the Republican nomination for lieutenant governor is an interesting race with all the trimmings. The George Dale/Gary Anderson race for the Democratic nomination for state Insurance Commission pits two strong candidates in that primary to choose a November opponent for Republican state Sen. Mike Chaney.
