Hold the presses! Did the New York Times just endorse open primaries????

Hold the presses! Did the New York Times just endorse open primaries???? Well, there just may be hope yet for Mississippi!

OPEN PRIMARIES
  • For Congress in New York’s Ninth District (EDITORIAL NY Times) Their options — chosen, unfortunately, by the parties’ leaders instead of in open primaries — are Assemblyman David Weprin, a Democrat, and Bob Turner, a Republican and former communications executive. The choice is clear: Mr. Weprin would represent the district with far more expertise, sensitivity and fiscal rationality. 
  • Making elections better, more efficient should always be a top priority for county officials (Scott County Times - MS) Much is being debated about the need for open primaries to give voters a better opportunity for choices in their favored candidates. Unfortunately, there is not much we can do here in Scott County to make that happen other than to send representatives to Jackson that would speak for us on that matter.
