Both San Bernardino City Attorney Jim Penman and City Council Member Wendy McCammack received a big leg up in their respective reelection bids this week.

They each did not receive the endorsement of The Sun editorial board.

A usual death blow in hotly contested races.

Between the two, Penman faces the tougher of the races. Even though he’s facing a carpetbagger.

McCammack on the other hand barely faces a challenge from consummate candidate Jim Mulvihill.

Honestly, I thought Mulvihill had given up running and losing.

Both Penman and McCammack are tough politicians and have been around the block more than once.

It should be noted that McCammack use to sit on the board of the Inland Valley Development Agency until she started asking too many questions.
