AC Wharton Jr., our September cover subject, has been leading a big field in the Oct. 15 special election for mayor of Memphis. He won't be hurt any by receiving the endorsement today of the Memphis Commercial Appeal, which cites his experience, fiscal frugality and leadership on issues such as dealing with infant mortality and at-risk youth.
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.
