Here's what the Chron has to say today at the start of early voting:

A complete list of Chronicle endorsements will run on election day. To date, the Chronicle has recommended the following candidates:
I'm also still a bit cheesed about how skimpy the recommendations were in yesterday's piece. Two sentences for a Senate primary? What's up with that? And frankly, some of the judicial picks were a little weird, and not at all in line with the endorsements that many clubs have been giving. Finally, compare the lazy little blurb they wrote in favor of Republican Court of Criminal Appeals judge Paul Womack to the actually informative endorsements for his opponent, Robert Francis, that the Statesman, Morning News, Star-Telegram, and Express News all wrote. The phrase "mailing it in" comes to mind. Seriously, this is embarrassing.Posted by Charles Kuffner on February 19, 2008 to Election 2008
