I borrow my headline from Andrew Sullivan, who has been tracking Republicans coming out in favor of Obama. Jim Leach, a former longtime Republican congressman from Iowa, has endorsed the Democrat.
And, closer to our world, Pat Thomas, the Republican mayor of Dothan, Alabama, has endorsed the Democratic candidate in the local congressional race, Montgomery Mayor Bobby Bright.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
