Your choices in this Republican primary are not good.
You can vote for Tommy Hanson, a commercial real estate manager whose views on the issues are to the right of many or most Republicans. Or you can vote for Kimball Ladien, a doctor who is invested in at least one bizarre conspiracy theory that’s not worth passing along here.
Our unenthusiastic endorsement goes to Hanson, though he believes climate change is — in capital letters — “AS REAL AS THE EASTER BUNNY AND SANTA.”
Your third choice might be to sit this one out.
