PRESSING ISSUE

VARGASState Senate candidate Juan Vargas dropped in on the staff of the Southwestern Sun Tuesday just to say hello and I got your back.

The former California assemblyman and darling of the insurance industry recently made a modest donation to the college newspaper.

Man, you just can’t buy that kind of goodwill and publicity. (Well you can, sort of,  if you donate $3,200 out of your senate campaign fund to help the Sun cover its printing costs after college administrators threaten to not pay the newspaper’s printer.)

Vargas’ opponent, Republican Brian Hendry, said he would consider making a donation to the newspaper as well, But, he admitted, his coin purse holds far less than the $626,000 Vargas has raised this year.

Maybe Hendry should consider buying a subscription.
