Updated to reflect that Durst says he was criticizing the endorsement process in general, not our endorsement in his race.
Posted without rebuttal is this Facebook comment from Senate candidate Branden Durst. Durst, D-Boise, is running for state Senate against Boise Republican Sen. Mitch Toryanski, who we endorsed on Friday.
Said Durst Tuesday: "Reading the Idaho Statesman Opinion Page endorsements reminds me a lot of an abused spouse. Rather than look at what the spouse is doing, they keep saying it won't ever happen again. Guess what, they've been doing it to you for 20 years, it's not going to stop."
Durst says his remark was a general critique of the endorsement process, not a comment on our endorsement in his race.
