DescriptionThe Hutchinson News' editorial board struggled some to endorse a candidate in the crowded Republican primary for Kansas' 1st District U.S. House seat, in which all six candidates sound mostly the same. But in an endorsement published in Sunday's editions, we settled on Salinan Tracey Mann as the best pick, saying he "at least shows the ability to be reasonable and straightforward with voters."

We were wrong. And we withdraw that endorsement.

Quite simply, the reason is that it turns out Mann is what is known as a birther. He questions the citizenship of President Barack Obama despite evidence that is irrefutable to most objective, rational people - including a birth certificate released by the Hawaii secretary of state and birth announcements printed in Honolulu's two major newspapers.
