I would like to know if the Journal-World has editorially ever supported anyone other than a Republican for governor or senator? I can do research but it would take a long time. Hope you have an answer.
Without doing comprehensive research, it would be safe to say J-W endorsements have generally followed the Republican leanings of the state. However, the Journal-World supported Democrat Robert Docking who was first elected governor in 1966, and, as noted in Sunday's editorial, is supporting the rel-election this year of Democratic Gov. Katheen Sebelius.
