"...we declined to issue an endorsement largely because of Eckhardt's unseemly embrace of and by the most rabid toll warriors."

This implies that the Chronicle would have endorsed Eckhardt, if it weren't for her allegiance with the Toll Party.

What does the Chronicle have against the Toll Party?

The Chronicle (and the Statesman) supports tolling roads we've already paid for. The Chronicle likes how the unaccountable freeway tolls will pay for uncontrolled development. But, uncontrolled development is not a person with a family or a budget to live within.

The more uncontrolled development that takes place, the larger the papers circulation, which means more ad revenue.
