New Bee endorsement slant?

Re "Endorsements 2014" (Editorial, May 19): Until recently, Bee endorsements followed a pattern: endorse the blandest, most middle-of-the-road contender. Such endorsements would appeal to the middle-of-the-road sector that dominates the demographics of The Bee's market sector.

Your latest endorsements show a different pattern. In races for city council in districts 5 and 7 and for Assembly District 7, you endorsed the more conservative contenders.

The same trend is most disturbing in the race for State schools chief. In this era, that job requires someone to bring the sides to reason and cooperation. You've endorsed professional ideologue Marshall Tuck.

For district attorney, the three contenders are liberal prosecutor Todd Leras, moderate prosecutor Maggy Krell and conservative prosecutor Anne Marie Schubert. You picked Schubert. What gives?
