FORT ATKINSON, Wis. (AP) -- The Daily Jefferson County Union is endorsing Republican John McCain for president, saying he is a decisive leader with valuable military experience.
In an editorial published Thursday, the County Union said McCain spoke out quickly when Russia invaded Georgia, while Sen. Barack Obama took three days to react.
The paper also praises McCain for having the courage to oppose his party's leadership when necessary.
The editorial lauds McCain's bipartisan work, including his collaboration with Wisconsin Democratic Sen. Russ Feingold on campaign finance reform.
It says Obama "seems to have a rather Ivy League, elite view of America" whereas McCain is "a proven maverick and worked for change long before this election."
