I’m happy to report that I’m planning to publish the Off on a Tangent political endorsements for the 2013 election next week. Endorsements in local elections and issues—four Loudoun County bond issues and the 87th District seat in the Virginia House of Delegates—will be posted on Monday, October 21. Endorsements in statewide elections—Attorney General of Virginia, Lieutenant Governor of Virginia, and Governor of Virginia—will be posted on Tuesday, October 22.

I’m sorry that these are being posted so late this year. I try to have my endorsements published a month or more before election day, but a number of things conspired against me this year. I’m just working on making my decisions and writing my endorsements now. So it goes.

As always, in addition to the coveted Off on a Tangent endorsements, I will be providing live election coverage at http://election.scottbradford.us/ beginning around 6:00 p.m. on November 5 and continuing until all races are called, or 1:00 a.m. If races remain un-called after 1:00 a.m., I will resume coverage as time permits in the following days.
