I was shocked and distressed to see the Sun endorsed Rep. Joe Heck in Congressional District 3. How could you? The Sun has always been the one remaining progressive holdout against the forces of the extreme right wing, which is typified by today’s congressional GOP.

Heck has accomplished almost nothing in his only term in the House, except to vote for every regressive idea put forth by the extreme conservatives who run the party. Heck may be many things, but he certainly is not “reasonable,” as you describe him.

His re-election will further strengthen the forces of regression and repression, whose only real goal is to defeat everything President Barack Obama wants to do to get this country healthy again. Sadly, you have lost complete credibility with this endorsement. Hopefully, the voters of Congressional District 3 will show better judgment than you have.
