When Blaine Young chose to run for commissioner, we urged him to close out his radio show. The reason is that Young’s broadcast clearly gives him a political advantage, a pulpit from which he can broadcast his message three hours a day, five days a week. Now that Young is making moves to run for governor — and in our opinion, if you’re raising cash you’re formally a candidate, even if you haven’t signed that official little slip of paper at the state Board of Elections — we have to repeat that call.
