Who Loves Eric Hovde? Gannett Wisconsin Media, I'm Guessin'

Gannett Wisconsin Media publishes the Manitowoc Herald-Times-Reporter, from a large section of the July 14, 2012, front page is reproduced below.

My home printer scans an area of 8 1/2 by 11 1/2 inches at a time, so I had to create two screenshots before transferring the total image to this blogpost.

The banner headline, seemingly life-size photo, and first few paragraphs of the article take up nearly half the front page..  How many candidates get this much space the day after winning an election?

Needless to say, JoAnna and I reacted with jaw-dropping, eye-rolling amazement.

Musta been a slow-news Saturday.  (But it also makes me wonder if the front page is for sale.)
