Now that's a shocker:
Sen. John Kerry has opened up an early lead in the number -- and potential impact -- of newspaper endorsements, according to E&P's exclusive tabulation covering the race for president.
Counting every editorial endorsement we know of, Kerry has won the backing of five daily newspapers, with a total daily circulation of 881,012.
President Bush has gotten the nod from four papers, with a total daily circulation of 323,743.
I'm curious, when's the last time a Republican won the "circulation" election?
