How do you choose who you will support?
Do you support the person whose views are closest to yours? Do you support the person who you think has the judgment, courage, knowledge, compassion and intellect to make the the best legislative decisions? Do you look at someone with similar priorities to yours?
Do you look at who has the best chance of getting elected? Do you look at fundraising? Public speaking? Stamina? Do you look at the campaign itself? Do you look for charisma and likability?
Do endorsements matter in your decision?
