At the end of October, The Maneater’s editorial board gathered on a lazy Saturday afternoon to discuss, argue, decide and ultimately endorse our preferred candidates for the following week’s election. The conversations were spirited and occasionally fiery, and while we ultimately realized that we most likely wouldn’t be swaying any voters’ minds on the most important race, we attempted to cover as many of the main issues as possible and develop our editorial opinion carefully.
You can read which candidates we threw our weight behind here, here and here. Obama, McCaskill, Schaefer. Those races were all critical in their own ways, but arguably a fourth race stood out in importance to us as students at MU.
