St. Louis Post-Dispatch Endorses Hulshof Over Steelman - But is that a good thing?

Normally I would be wary of any candidate chosen by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch for endorsement in any election.  But I read with interest the Post's editorial endorsing Kenny Hulshof in the Republican gubernatorial primary against Sarah Steelman.  As the editors point out, both Hulshof and Steelman are conservative.

The Post picked Hulshof apparently because he knew what he was talking about and Steelman didn't seem to when interviewed by the editorial board.  As the editors wrote, "We admire Ms. Steelman's words but doubt their substance . . . Kenny Hulshof is better prepared and better qualified overall."

Anyone still undecided can check out the candidates answers to questions posed by at this link or listen to a debate tomorrow at 2:00 p.m. on KMOX.
