Crawford Newspaper Endorses Kerry

By  | 

A Central Texas weekly newspaper that bills itself as President Bush's hometown paper has endorsed Democrat John Kerry for president.

The Lone Star Iconoclast says the Massachusetts Senator will restore American dignity.

The Crawford-based newspaper has a circulation of about 425 and endorsed Bush in 2000.

Bush's ranch is near Crawford.

The editorial says Texans should rate the candidates not by hometown or political party, but by where they intend to take the country.

The Iconoclast editorialized in support of the invasion of Iraq and publisher W. Leon Smith backed Bush and the invasion in a BBC interview. But now, the editorial says Americans were duped into believing Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.
