Re "Rob Bishop: Insider can have clout in Capital" (Our View, Sept. 2):
Reading between the lines of the The Tribune editorial board's endorsement of Rep. Rob Bishop for re-election to Utah's 1st Congressional District, it sounds like the board thinks that Donna McAleer, Bishop's opponent, is better qualified. "There is just one thing Bishop has that McAleer doesn't have: seniority in Congress," which is important "if control of the U.S. House of Representatives stays with Republicans."
Seniority tips the scales? Seriously? So much for going with the best candidate. That's like a woman saying, "Yeah, my husband beats me, but he's a very good provider for me and the kids."
