Looking at the front page of the Northwest Herald Saturday leads me to predict that McHenry County Board member Carolyn Schofield will be endorsed by its editorial board.
It is my belief that newspaper editorial endorsements are having decreasing impact in elections.
When I looked at the first tabloid edition of the NWH on Monday, I went through the whole paper without finding the editorial page.
And, I was looking for it.
Editorials and letters to the editor were easy to find in the old format.
Just open the second section (assuming there was one on the day one was looking).
If the NWH put its official endorsement on its front page, people would see it.
Where the editorial is now, not as much impact.
Now, if a candidate has the money to promote such endorsements in a mailing or on television, they might be some help.
