Hugh Hewitt is endorsing Eric Garcetti in Tuesday’s mayoral election. “C'mon LA. This isn't close. Vote for @ericgarcetti. When in doubt, vote for the smarter candidate,” tweeted Hewitt this morning.
He then joined the Morning Answer crew to discuss his pick for LA’s next leader. Hugh told Brian, Ben and Elisha that he used to cover LA news and politics. He says Eric is “a very very smart guy. He’s a Democrat and a creature of special interests but—he—also served his country in the navy, did the Columbia and the Rhodes Scholar thing. He’s a very, VERY smart guy.”
“Wendy is just another—standard central issue Democrat from the land of the Unions,” continued Hugh. “Never ever impressed me. Never ever did anything that was memorable. Garcetti at least has raw intelligence going for him.”
