"Ed Martin will give Carnahan a run for his money. . .I like Ed," said St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay of Martin, who will duke it out with incumbent Cong. Russ Carnahan.Concludes Morley:
Obviously, neither Slay nor Wessel is endorsing Ed Martin, but it doesn't look like either is endorsing Russ Carnahan either.Actually, Slay pushed back against Berger's quote in a couple of tweets. First, he took issue with the quote being used out of context:
Second, he mentioned his own involvement in a fundraiser for Carnahan (not entirely clear whether he's hosting the fundraiser or just participating in it):
So anyway, yes, Slay is clearly "endosring" Russ Carnahan. I suppose one can ask just how much Slay supports Carnahan, but it's obviously a far different story than what Morley is presenting.
Also relevant, I've tried a couple of times (though not on this particular post) to correct blatent misinformation on some of Berger's blog posts, and he never lets my comments through. As such, I don't find him a very credible source of information, particularly given his obvious disdain for Russ Carnahan.
