That's the Inky, the Daily News, City Paper, the Northeast Times, PhillySkyline. If the editorial boards from all of those papers (and B-Love from Skyline) were able to volunteer, he'd be swept into office.
The Inquirer endorsement has clearly helped Nutter pull himself into a statistical tie with Tom Knox in the polls and raise more money. We figure the Daily News endorsement does the same.
Nutter's surge is leading to all kinds of rumors about who may be leaning on who to leave the race to get behind the former Councilman. Just rumors at this point, as far as I can ascertain. Maybe Clout will tell us something different tomorrow.
UPDATE: The Next Mayor now confirms. From a press release on the site.
When people talk about Philadelphia, they talk about a city on the verge – not of bankruptcy, but of greatness. That’s why the next few years matter so much. That’s why we endorse Michael Nutter for Mayor.”
“Nutter has the intelligence, the vision, and the experience necessary to take this city into its rightful future, and to rewrite the old “corrupt and content” story of machine politics, insider deals and pay-to-play,” according to the editorial.
