TRACE GALLAGHER (FOX NEWS CORRESPONDENT): We've been checking the editorial board to find out if there's some kind of ideological bent to the Capital, and there doesn't seemed to be any. For the most part this is a local newspaper, it covers the capital, it covers city hall, it covers the local races. For example, they just endorsed a moderate Democrat candidate in the primaries. But the editorial board doesn't seem to have any severe ideological bent so you kind of look towards what's the M.O., what's the motive behind something like this, and there's nothing that jumps out at you that says, well, it could possibly be this.
