HIZZONER ’07: Inquirer Endorsement Butters Nutter


In an editorial appearing tomorrow, The Philadelphia Inquirer will endorse former City Councilman Michael Nutter in the May 15 Democratic primary race. The newspaper’s editorial calls Nutter “the most promising package of achievement, persistence, smarts and vision.” The endorsement said Nutter, 49, “is easy to imagine on the national stage as the fresh voice of a resurgent Philadelphia, changing the narrative from one about bloodshed, corruption and dysfunction to one about new ideas, new energy, new partnerships.”

INQUIRER: The editorial board said three other candidates “don’t measure up.” It dismissed the candidacies of Reps. Bob Brady and Chaka Fattah. It also declined to support businessman Tom Knox, whom it called “not so much an outsider as a novice.”
