For the first time in 16 years, the Fresno Bee endorses an opponent of GOP Congressman Nunes

“For the first time in 16 years, The Fresno Bee is endorsing someone other than Republican incumbent Rep. Devin Nunes in the California district’s congressional race,” HuffingtonPost is reporting.

“’Today The Fresno Bee takes a step it has not made since before 2002: It is recommending a candidate for the 22nd congressional district who is not Devin Nunes,’ the editorial board wrote in a fiery editorial on Saturday.

“The Bee announced its support for Nunes’ Democratic challenger, political newcomer Andrew Janz. According to the paper’s editorial board, Janz, who is a Fresno prosecutor, ‘offers the best chance’ for representing the district and for bringing bipartisanship to Washington, D.C.”

    1. Nunes is like LaMalfa, a republican goon whose main concern is re-election and the trump agenda, not the people of his district. Now more than ever the toilet must be flushed.

  2. With Nunes being such a shameless Trumpster fool, they might want to admit regretting ever endorsing him.
    If Democrats don’t have a big win this November, this country is screwed.
