Jerry Hill ?? - The very same guy who just voted to spend(waste) money on High Speed Rail?

I think the endorsement shows why 'one issue does not make for an endorsement'. Obviously the two voted differently on the high speed rail bond appropriation. Joe looked at the records of the both candidates to replace him in the senate and chose accordingly. Of course, single-issue voters need not be so thorough....
